crochet bunting by my poppet

crochet bunting 1, originally uploaded by my poppet.

i think i wrote here some time ago about my new-found love of crochet - its portability, its tactile-ness (i know, not a word, but i am a weary mummy running on too little sleep - be kind!), and its ?adaptability/flexibility, no, i know, transformability* (ok, clearly wordsmithing is not my forte tonight!).

You know what I mean though, I hope... crochet allows us to make so many amazing and wonderful things... it just takes some imagination and creativity. Which is why this post i take my hat off to the lovely Cintia of my poppet, who has recently created this gorgeous crochet bunting - gorgeous! how lucky we are to live in such an amazing crafty community.

have fun everyone xo

*someone get me a thesaurus for christmas please!
