Whatever makes you smile

Just a bit of show and tell for today.  I had one of those moments today when you finish some thing that has been an idea floating around in your head for quite some time.

Today I sewed the last piece in place, hung it up on the wall, took a step back, took a big deep breath, let out a sigh and then smiled.  It actually kind of looks like what I had envisioned, and I must admitted I am kind of chuffed with myself. 

I am not one to talk a lot about what I do (or as some people say brag) and I did struggle with the concept of actually doing this blog and the few market stalls that I have done (I struggle with a lot of self doubt) but I am finally learning that it is OK to be proud of what you make.  And if it makes you smile then that is OK too.



  1. oh anna your crochet is just beautiful you really don't have to have any self doubt you are a wonderfully talented lady, I'm very grateful I know such a talented lady. The little birdy wreath looks lovely it's just so so cute. xx

  2. Thank you. This past year has been a big one for me. Starting a blog, doing markets and meeting some wonderful people like yourself. I really have enjoyed every part of it :)

  3. Oh how sweet, isn't it fun when an idea turns out just the way you had imagined.
    I love green and pink together and of course I love birds.

    Anna, what a wonderful idea, never doubt what you do and don't be embarrassed to share your successes....or failures. I find the blog world is very encouraging...
