Hook, Line and Sinker

used with permission from the Rose hip blog

Jennifer Paganelli recently featured Beata from Rose hip on her blog. What I saw was such an inspiration to me! I have become one of Beata's biggest fans. Anyway, one of the things she features is a pattern to make these flower pillows. I haven't crocheted since I was pregnant with Nathan, over six years ago. When I mentioned that I thought I wanted to crochet again to my mother-in-law, she gave me a huge box full of yarn that belonged to her mother. It's all wool, even some mohair and in perfect condition. And every color of the rainbow. This really touched me. It also was full of crochet hooks and knitting needles. I don't know how to knit, but if I ever want to learn I definitely have the equipment. Anyway, these are the products of my inspiration:



Maggie my niece.

Don't forget Holly.

Moms like to feel pretty too.

You have definitely been a busy gal. I'm jealous. I'd love to learn to knit or crochet. I might actually have time to read up on it soon but I'm afraid that attempting it myself would be disastrous. I can usually learn anything by reading about it but I just don't get that feeling when it comes to needle work!
The hats are lovely and that was such a sweet gesture from your mother in law!

those beanies are so cute. and i love the dress in the first picture. i have bought the same brown cupcake fabric, but haven't seen the pink one anywhere (in switzerland). i haven't used it all up yet. maybe i might 'copy' your stripy dress idea. i think you are so creative, a great inspiration.
keep up the good work.
greetings from cold switzerland
