But, oh my, what rewards for patience, perseverance & sheer pig headedness…

Summer Harvest is one of my newest creations – I had the idea to combine these colours & textures for ages & I think they work really well.

But this fine piece didn’t come about without a little pain – there were many hiccups along the way…. Some of the yarns I used, lovely though they are, were impossible to crochet so out came the needles. These knitted panels then suddenly became the focal point of the project from which the crochet motifs & bullions were worked – the original concept flew completely out the window

And the bag shape, another great idea at the time, took far more patience than I thought I had getting the patches to fit they way I wanted… so there was lots of grumbling & pouting about why I hadn’t chosen an easier route

But, oh my, what rewards for patience, perseverance & sheer pig headedness – I’m totally in love with the result.

I guess the point I’m trying to make is… Freeform sometimes has a mind of its own but if you allow yourself the freedom to go along with where it’s taking you, bend a little even though that’s not what you originally intended, allow the colours & textures to speak – you’ll be pleasantly surprised – I was…

This piece is available in my Etsy shop
