For months, I had been coveting a wonderful crochet book of my sister-in-law called Crochet Inspiration by Sasha Kagan. Lucky for me, my mother-in-law gave me my very own copy for Christmas.
The book has great photos showing different fibers and weights of yarns. In particular, it has a chapter on making gorgeous and unique crochet flowers. This motivated me to start a new line of flower-inspired items for iceblueberries, such as big, funky, floral hair clips. Next, I’m planning on adding some felted flowers with genuine gemstone finishing touches.
In line with the flower theme, I’ve started some spring cleaning at my shop. I’ve updated my avatar, and I’m working on a new banner. For those of you who follow, you may have noticed I’ve taken most of my jewelry and sewn items. I did this to create a more consistent shop identify focused on crochet and knit items.
If things go well, I might open up a second shop this summer for the jewelry.
In the meantime, stop and smell the roses!
