This Christmas was wonderful because I got lots of books to support my obsession.

I am trying to teach myself to crochet.  So my family gave me a plethora of crochet books… I love them. ( my books and my family)
If you are obsessed with surface design these might be worth checking out.  They are not your average crochet books.

  1. Freeform Knitting and Crochet by Jenny Dowd
  2. Surface Works by Jenny Dowd
  3. 100 Flowers to Knit & Crochet by Lesley Stanfield
  4. Uncommon Crochet by Julie Armstrong Holetz
  5. the 2nd edition of Freeform – Serendipitous design techniques for knitting & crochet by Prudence Mapstone
  6. I Can’t Believe I am Crocheting ( Updated Edition ! ) 

and for my other obsession – art journaling

  1. Jill Berry’s Personal Geography  


So I have been crocheting like a fiend.  I wanted to crochet flowers first… so I did.

Out of this obsession grew my Happy Flower Series.  I attached the flowers to small canvases.   These were wrapped and given to friends for Christmas.   😉  Hey.. everyone needs a crochet flower hanging on their wall.

And for my birthday – two dear friends went to my favorite store…. Anthropology – and purchased the very  quiche plate that I coveted because  “I really needed it!”   Really!  How could I possibly live without this!

Brightly colored circles!

Can’t wait to see where my creative mind will wander with these new muses.

Happy New Year
