Around the internet crochet world………..
From an Italian blog Daniela Cerri this free form crochet room divider/screen. Wow lots of work done in that ! From what I can gather from the translation (I don’t read Italian) the author did it herself. KUDOS for the work.
Making stripes in the round is such a challenge. Whether it is a hat or armigurumi, you want your piece to look nice on all sides…not just the front. This used to make me totally curse because I am a perfectionist by nature and this just was not going to do.

Multi Color Single Hammock handwoven Natural Cotton by hamanica.
Now that is a work of art…textile style !
The colors….the craftsmanship…all crocheted by hand……….made in Nicaragua. When I saw this…the words of the Who song “Magic Bus” were flying in my head….”I want it, I want it, I want it , I want it….” oh yeah the next part too..”you can’t have it…” lol
Actually they are only charging USD $48.00 for it. If I only had the space and a place for it……………. I’d give them $48 in a second !
They have many other styles as well, all equally as beautiful.
Well, I guess that is enough salivating for one day…………..
With crochet thread !!! Check out these two ideas I saw…..
First of all :
Heart Covered Soap by Red Heart made with Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread. I really like this idea…would make a great gift along with some handmade washcloths and such…..
I came across this picture…stones covered in crochet motifs in a cool looking wooden door frame. What an awesome idea………
As you can see, I am in a “get inspired” mode…. 😉
To my craft-y and art /street art loving friends….by now you have heard of yarnbombing….but have you heard of Eyebombing. ?
Some very neat pics on this site…makes you want to run out and get some googly eyes yourself ! 😉
