It’s true, this is a crochet related area that I haven’t touched yet, and think I should give a go… sometime 😉
maRRose - CCC --- Yarnbombing-04maRRose - CCC --- Yarnbombing-03I admire a lot of yarnbombers’ work greatly; I love the fun and beautiful yarn installations that they create, and I really believe their art makes the world a little happier.

Have a happy week,
