Making earrings and other jewelry with crochet is my favorite. It’s so unique and versatile. And if you look around online, there are some AMAZING pieces out there. I’ve been in the mood for flowers lately. I guess because it’s spring. And crochet flowers are always beautiful, especially when made into wearable pieces of jewelry. So these are what I’ve been working on this week.
Since the bulk of this blog will probably be about the things I make, mostly crochet and jewelry, I figured I might as well get started here and share some of the the items I’ve made recently. And of course, I gotta pimp: https://www.etsy.com/shop/AWorldCreated
My beautiful sister-in-law was my model:
This guy showed up on our front porch Saturday, cold, wet, and scared. I fell in love with him immediately. We fed him, gave him treats and water, and a blanket. My sister and I stayed on the porch with him, hoping someone would drive by and claim him. But hours went by, and nothing. I posted his photo on Facebook and asked my friends to share it in case his owners saw it. Still nothing by the end of the day. We brought him inside and learned he’s a gentle giant, terrified of our toy poodle and pomeranian. He was just so sweet and precious, following us around, lying at our feet. When no one claimed him, my cousin called and said collie’s are her favorite dog and she’s always wanted one and if no one claims him, she’d love to have him.
It was obvious he’d been neglected. His hair was matted, dirty, filled with sticky things and twigs. So the first thing she did when she got him home is bathe and brush him and…..
Now look! He’s gorgeous! She said he’s doing well, eating well, and her little girls LOVE him, and he’s very good with them. I can’t wait to go visit him.
