Inside Crochet Issue 44 Friendship bracelets
Im a very lucky girl . This is my second pattern published in this month's Inside Crochet.I design items months before they are published .I often forget what I have made as I'm always knee deep in projects .so, when I am in the magazine ,it really is a great surprise. I sit with a cup of tea in my favourite chair and slowly I go through the magazine,savouring the moment I see my work.
Every since I can remember I have always wanted to have my work immortalised forever in a book. I know I'm sounding rather dramatic but its really meant a lot to me. I come from the world where everything was learnt through books. When the library was the biggest source of knowledge .I read encyclopedias and used dictionaries. The days before computers were "de rigeur" , It is all so very different now, that's not a bad thing, progress is great but a little sad for someone like me. (
OK, I will stop now , as I have just re:read this and I sound like a old lady talking about the good old days. )
I guess what I m trying to say is having my patterns published makes me extremely happy. The styling is so fabulous, my work comes to life, it tells a story.My work becomes whatever you want it to be. A picture really does paint a thousand words.
Britt Spring This photographer takes the most amazing images, she captures things that we should see. That is such a skill, her work is amazing. She is the lead photography for Inside Crochet and she makes all our work come alive. Thank you Britt.
