My Granny A Day 116 is a very bright yellow & orange combo. I chose these vibrant colours because it's been such a dull and boringly, continuously rainy day today.
Furthermore my square today is dedicated to Beth Butcher as she's such a lovely lady and loves to crochet too!
Now for ......
As I don't have a Knitting or Crochet Hero, well apart from myself that is, and I didn't want to bore you with a story about me and my crochet addiction.....
Your Knitting Or Crochet Hero
Blog about someone in the fibre crafts who truly inspires you. There are not too many guidelines for this, it's really about introducing your readers to someone who they might not know who is an inspiration to you. It might be a family member or friend, a specific designer or writer, indie dyer or another blogger. If you are writing about a knitting designer and you have knitted some of their designs, don't forget to show them off. Remember to get permission from the owner if you wish to use another person's pictures.
I have decided to play the Wildcard today instead
WILDCARD - Craft Your Perfect Day
Plan your fantasy day with your craft, It might just take up one hour of your day or be the entire focus of the day, but tell your readers where you'd love to craft, whether you'd craft alone or with friends, knitting or crocheting something simple or spending a day learning new skills.
My Fantasy Crochet Day would be to teach CROCHET ALL DAY
Here are a few of the reasons why....
My pupils have Crocheted all of these items
And they amaze me with their their enthusiasm
From a very early stage!
Whether they come to me in group classes
Whether they are a total beginner
Or they are reviving a lost craft
They surprise me with these wonderful crocheted items
Each time they come to see me
Teaching makes me so happy
As I know that I am passing on a life long craft that they in turn
Can pass on to others in time
Be it for making their own cards
Or fashion accessories
I love it when they bring their homework achievements along to their next lesson
Or when they discover that they CAN make a flower
Or a Chicken
Or join squares together for a blanket
Or indeed make Toys and Gifts for their friends (lucky friends I say)
Just look at how this FABULOUS blanket has turned out
And how this Piggy Ted (that's our nickname for it) is coming along
or how this cushion cover is beginning to take shape
I have also taught a few students the basics of using a sewing machine
So that their Crocheted Creations can be finished off correctly
I have also agreed to make a "Cardigan - A - Long" with one student so that she can read a pattern 100% correctly
And when students email me pictures of their achievements
I am so thrilled to see them
And I feel so proud
Of all their hard work
To my favourite craft
So here is a GOLD STAR to all my Crochet Students
And that is my FANTASY DAY with my CRAFT
I can't wait until I move house and can host Crochet Days and Crochet Weekends - another fantasy that may soon become a reality!
