Good morning again! We love to feature the work done by our community members, picking out crochet that shows all the wonderful variety that is possible. We are all about celebrating the creativity and beauty that is out there. We hope they inspire you to try thread crochet if you haven’t done it yet. Or to make something using the time-honored filet techniques. The project can be small, like Terry’s purse trim (below) or intricate like Sheryl’s bonnet. What’s important is the beauty, the process of trying something new, and the fun that can be had along the way.
Thanks go to Edith, Sheryl, Terry and Suzanne for sharing these photos of their work.
Adding a bit of delicate crochet, like Terry has done, to a standard tote can soften it and give it a whole new look for Spring.
We love seeing traditional pieces, especially those made by family members, framed. Suzanne’s shows the honoring of the generations, their love and their art that will stay. Somewhere, sometime, another relative will see that and say “I want to make something like that, too.” Someone else will want to know the story behind it. It’s one way we keep the stories going.
