My first crochet snowflake
Since my sister has arrived, we've been to the fabric/craft store about five times. She taught me how to crochet the above snowflake this weekend. I like to knit, but haven't done any crocheting, so it was fun to learn a new way to play with yarn. As we were sitting side by side on the couch, pouring over a pattern we found on 21 Crochet Snowflake Patterns, we were like our aunts and great-aunts who spent their evenings knitting, sewing, and creating things back in the times before tv and computers, facebook and other distractions. It always feels good to make something. It's good therapy, too, time to sit a moment, think, and let your thoughts unravel with the yarn and reform into a new creation.
We'll get to the cleaning, furniture rearranging and holiday decorating later this week!
Go. Create. Inspire!

Journaling Prompt:  Have you tried a new craft or hobby lately?
