Balance

I've been enjoying my time not having to take a picture every day. I set crochet aside for the most part last year but can now be more balanced between the two.

I surprised my good friend, Kerri, with this handbag on Saturday.




She loves it and I love that she does! Being able to create/give things to my friends/family is a great feeling. For Christmas, I made mug cozies for some family members and they seemed to really like them. My brother-in-law, Kevin, even used his shortly after opening the gift, "To try it out." :)

I hope you are enjoying the new year as much as I am!

That is the most darling bag. I just learned how to do the granny stitch this past year. It's fun to crochet, but I can't imagine ever being able to do something as pretty as that. I'm going to email the link to my daughter. I know she'll love it. She's my crafty girl. :)

I knew she would be. My daughter is in LOVE with this bag. She wanted me to ask you where you found the directions. She'd like to make one, too (website, perhaps?). We both think it's adorable!

So cute! I love the yarn you used for your Starling. So fresh and springy, especially with the little bloom. Thank you for letting me know you posted about it! :)

Thank you for the website. We bought yarn over the weekend so she can get started. Very cool that there are videos!!!
