Wednesday, December 12, 2012 12-12-12: Nothing like this is going to come along anytime soon! Any of you who have followed my blog for some time know how hard I work at rambling on about how crochet is so intertwined with my life. Sadly, I must report that during our visit to the KrisKindl Market in Chicago, I was unable to make any connection, unless you count the lacy wood-carved ornaments I saw among millions of others. That's okay; it was nevertheless a wonderful way to stroll, get in the Christmas spirit with my honey and to get rosy cheeks in the crisp air!

Thursday, December 6, 2012 I usually blog on Mondays; where has this week gone? Have you ever been privileged to have a professional photographer us a blanket you have crocheted in a photo? It hit me like a bolt of lightening recently, when my daughter shared pics from a photo shoot she did for her Christmas card. There it was...the blanket I crocheted for her wedding gift. It was draped gracefully around her now precious family of four, some 7 years after I had gifted it. Low beautiful to see the filet hearts draping them in love. (I'm hoping we'll get a set of these gorgeous photos as a gift and then I'll post it here). Meanwhile, it got me to thinking of some other photos I have in which the photographer used blankies I had made. What fun and a lasting legacy of my crochet to which is quite an honor. The crochet is so beautiful as background as well. Try scanning crochet sometime. It makes for beautiful eye-candy and is great for your Facebook Timeline!
