Happy Valentine's Day!!!
The photo above shows a heart I crocheted today after seeing it on the Attic24 blog. The pattern is actually here. Lucy, from Attic24, was kind enough to send me the link for the blog the pattern was on.
All the crocheting I have done so far (successfully) has been granny squares. I started to think I could only crochet in a circle, but I am quite proud of this creation! I made a few mistakes, but also learned how to increase and decrease!
If it weren't for the Attic24 blog I don't think I would be crocheting today. Her colors and her patterns are so inspiring that I had to conquer crochet.
I am not sure why but ever since last fall I have had this obsession with birds. Not that I want to own any live ones, but just birdy things. Just before Christmas Attic24 posted a pattern for this bird, and I just had to make a bunch! You can find the pattern for this cutsy bird here.
So I have been a busy bird making birdie things.....quilts, pillows, jewelry, ceramics......and will post different items in upcoming blog posts. I was also quite pleased with my new "obsession" when I opened my new Pottery Barn catalog and saw that birds are the "in" thing. There were pillows, decorations etc...
Here is a quilt I had at the Art for the Parks Show, called "the early birds".
Good-bye for now. Have a wonderful Valentine's Day :)
