So I have something of a confession to make...a secret to let you readers in on, so to say...ok, are you ready for it? This will blow your mind...you will wonder if you ever knew me at all. Here goes...I love animals. :) Ok, ok, ok....so maybe it's not that great of a secret, but I am reeeeeeeeeeallllllly excited about something combining my love of knitting with my love of animals. Browsing recently on Etsy, I came across this wonderful designer named Cheryl (ceCreations) who creates custom-made DPN holders. And I thought that maybe, just maybe, she could recreate my babies to hold those DPNs that I struggle with so badly- and that just maybe, I wouldn't be able to hate knitting with DPNs quite so much with Mondo, Maverick, Odie and Stewie so lovingly holding my needles together. And guess what? She did it!!! Here's a sneak peek, because that's all I've gotten so far. Rest assured I am positively bouncing up and down on the balls of my feet waiting for them to arrive....
Until next time, happy stitching!
It's that time of year- time for the bees to start buzzing; time for snowdrops, hyacinths, and tulips to start opening up and showing us their beautiful colors. A friend of mine recently posted on Facebook, "God opens millions of flowers without forcing the buds. It reminds us not to force anything, for things happen in the right time.♥" How true this is, and how well I would do to be reminded of this more often...
This picture of tulip fields in the Netherlands struck a deep creative chord in me- can you imagine what this would look like up close, to be overwhelmed with this much color? It's a beautiful patchwork quilt of breathtaking colors.
I'm grateful for springtime each year to help dig me out of my deep-winter habits and hibernating moods. I am unable to refuse the creativity that bubbles up in me at this time of year- I see color combinations that I would never put together otherwise...I see geometric shapes...I dream of crochet flowers...How are you motivated by spring?
