Together during Quarantine

Lately I have been hearing that so known phrase “we are stronger together” or “the union makes as strong” so many times that I thought giving it a try, stop being an hermit-crafter and start making bigger projects by recruiting more crafters and working together.

But.. it is not that simple. I have tried it a few times so far and it haven´t been easy at all. There is a thing with each ones schedule, a lack of trust (sometimes we just dont know each other enough) and certaintly and ego matter. Yes, it is always around when making artistic or creative projects.

So I wanted to contact Ely, who is the founder and designer behind @mora_tejidos

I have been folowing her from a while, she has achieved a huge audience who share her crochet passion, particulary granny square.

I invite you to keep reading this story 🙂

About unpredictable inspiration

I hope you are already used to this situation we are now living. It is true that humans easily adapt, I`ve seen it in so many examples lately!

What I bring to you today has a lot to do with adaptation but also erratic, unpredictable inspiration, as I call it. Maybe it is just common inspiration, but when it comes this way, from nowhere, I just need to name it differently!

I invite you to see this new “quarentistic” erratic and free design I have created this week, in which you will be able to use spare yarn from here and there at home or order some yarn from your favorite local provider, who is maybe struggling to keep her business standing.

Let`s see!

Color and design from isolation

Facing this unpleasant quarentine, that tonight turns into a total quarantine here where I live, the best idea I have found to deal with this is creating, creating and inviting you to create too!

I do this for myself, for you, and for all the isolated women around the world who desperate need a zen moment. To let their creativity flow, forget about the exterior and focus on the interior. To breathe..

In this post I am sharing with you another FOREVER FREE tool for you to print, re print, share all you want, transmiting creativity. Let`s see!

3Birds Tapestry crochet pattern set

I have always said nature is an endless resource.. of inspiration!

But this time I didn`t want to make a flower-inspired design (as I usually do). I searched a bit and run into Latin American birds. I found there an amazing world to explore and share with you.

It wasn`t simple to pass the design I had in mind into a tapestry crochet template. It is not something you just copy from one format to another. But I finally achieved something I am fully pleased about 🙂

Come and join me reading the full process, you are welcome!

7 Napkin folds using woven squares

:::LEER EN ESPAÑOL

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a great time starting your Christmas decorations 🙂

Today I bring you a nice set of ideas I came up with while thinking how to stand out this year with something easy, simple and handmade (of course).

So I thought of woven squares! How to include them in the table and establish a sort of eclectic folk style to my Christmas dinner decoration was the challenge.
