I want it, I want it…

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…………..

Cover me….

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…. 😉
