Spring-Time for a Fresh Start

IMG_3123

It’s Spring Time! Don’t you just love how everything turns from brown to green, seemingly overnight. I made this adorable little pomsai tree in honor of all of the greenery and because I don’t have a green thumb so this pom pom tree is perfect for me.

Spring is also the time to start new projects. I mentioned last month that I wouldn’t be having crochet classes anymore because it was too frustrating to go through so much preparation for classes and then there were times when absolutely no one showed up. So I started a Meetup group for crocheters and knitters, just so I could hang out with other people who love yarn and yarny projects just as much as I do. In the process of doing that, I had several people contact me and ask me about crochet lessons. So, I’ve decided that I do still want to teach crochet but this time I won’t be scheduling public classes that anyone can sign up for, I’ll be teaching private lessons for those who contact me wanting to learn to crochet. I think it’s a much better plan. I can still combine my love of crochet with my experience as a former teacher to help others become as passionate as I am about creating something fun, cute and useful out of balls of squishy, colorful yarn.

The Meetup group starts next week. I’m excited about that too! Meeting new people, sharing ideas, creating, drinking coffee or wine, snacking. No pressure to teach with this group, just relaxing and socializing. I’m also hosting a new book club at the Watauga Library beginning in May. The genre is historical fiction and our first book is The English Wife by Lauren Willig. Read along with us, if you can’t join us. Share with me what crochet projects you’re working on. I’d love to hear from you! <3
