I am always in awe and respect of other artists’ works. So many are so good at what they do — I love sharing their talent.
So for this Tuesday blog I’d like to share the recent creativity of Laura Kate from Daily Fiber and her fiber and fabric work. It’s just amazing.
It’s been a while since I shared the turtle in the pond fiber object. As a reminder, it was inspired by a photo taken by Bill on a recent camping trip at Lake Montgomery.
I loved the light, the colors and the texture of this image. I knew right away that I want to create my own version in fabric……….
Please click on over to her website and see how creates a great piece of art from this photo!
Quite simply, crochet feeds the human need for balance in our lives. Making something with our hands reflects something basic about ourselves. We want to work hard without losing touch with our creative selves; we want to earn money without losing our souls; and we want to be part of a larger picture of human progression while still maintaining our individuality. – Crochet Designer Vickie Howell
The Art of Crocheting is so much more than a hook and yarn.
It is a talent honed on cold nights and empty days
And during the rare times children are napping.
It is the miraculous obsession of creating fabric by interlocking loops of yarn, thread, or strands of other materials using a crochet hook.
It is a glorious celebration of material and creativity and vision.
It is patience, perseverance, and practice.
And besides all of that — it’s beautiful Art.
