As long as I can remember, my Mother always had a crochet project or ten by her side. She was extremely talented and I like to think I got my creativity from her. She made so many beautiful things!! Unfortunately, she passed away long before I became interesting in crochet so I didn't get the opportunity to learn from her. But, I believe her being gone is what made me all the more motivated to learn the craft and carry on her legacy.
I taught myself how to crochet back in 2010 and, once I got the hang of it and passed the frustration stage(s), I fell in love. Since then, I've made a few lap-ghans (my attention span is not long enough to make a full afghan), a lot of scarves but...never a doily. My most favorite crochet items to make are not necessarily the most traditional. Over the holidays I made a TON of 100% cotton, eco-friendly dishcloths...they were definitely my most popular gift item. I also make a spa line consisting of soap savers, spa cloths, face scrubbies, and reusable cotton rounds...which are all absolutely fantastic if I do say so myself! I am always looking for more sustainable/eco-friendly products so I even crochet myself a reusable Swiffer WetJet pad.
So, a big thank you to my Mom is in order for, along with a million other things, introducing me to the world of crochet and passing on her talent and passion to create beautiful things by example.
I work very hard and am extremely proud of all of my creations and I know she would be proud of me and my accomplishments too :)
