Recently we (hubby & I) made the decision to move.  Just prior to making the decision I had begun a project which I have been diligently attempting to complete prior to our move.  I love to crochet and had made some snowflakes for our Christmas tree last year.  I had several people ask if I sold them?  Since it was mid December I decided to wait until this year to attempt to make and sell any.  

 

Last month I began choosing patterns I liked and started to crochet & stiffen my samples.  I wanted to get them complete in enough time that I could fill orders prior to December 1st.  Just after beginning this task we got the opportunity to move and made the decision.  I am  happy to say I finally managed to finish my samples and can get about the business of packing full steam!

 

Although it's crochet, I still feel it's a form of art and thought I'd share my accomplishment here so you could see part of what I've been busy with the past few weeks. :)

 

 

My favorite is the one with the Irish rose in the center.

 

Hopefully I won't be too sporadic during the move. I'm going to try to be here as much as I can.  

Hugs to all!

Wow, Cat, they're beautiful. Ye,s of course it is art, and indeed what an accomplishment. Such beautifl, fine crochet, too. I hope you get lots of orders. Someone will be having a white cotton Christmas!

Gorgeous! You make it sound like an apology that it is crochet...I am a weaver/knitter/spinner and don't draw much...I feel that what makes me an artist is that I am a fiber 'artist'.  You go girl and DO NOT APOLOGIZE OR ACT LIKE THIS IS NOT ART!!!!!!!!  Not everyone can do this form of art and you should hold our head proud! 

I will definitely be posting my 'fiber arts' as a result of your comment!

Do post your fibre art, Marsha. I also spin, dye, felt, knit, sew and embroider. I posted some of my embrodiery on my gallery, as that is my main art. We have a wonderful creative fibres exhibition in the city near me in a local art glaaery, so fibre art is very much accepted as art here.
