Check out these colorful, winter cheer inducing pillowcases by Beata of Rose Hip. Aren’t they wonderful?
Beata started making these in October right around the time she got her hands on a copy of Crochet Adorned, and apparently she has been crocheting up a storm!! I think I would be so happy to walk into my bedroom (or any room!) and see these– and in case you don’t crochet (or sew), she’s selling them in her etsy shop. Her fabric and yarn color combos are excellent, and after trying to match clothes to yarn for a good six months, let me tell you- it’s not as easy as she makes it seem! So, if you’re looking for something happy to give this holiday, check out all of her pillow case listings.She’s even having a giveaway on her blog here, check it out! And if you want to give it a shot yourself– add Crochet Adorned (perhaps a signed copy?) to your list.
I also wanted to share the sweetest email I got today about the book, in case there are any crocheters on your gift list.
Hi, I received a copy of your above mentioned book and I wanted to tell you that I absolutely LOVE it!!!! The items in your book are beautiful. The instructions are clearly written and the pictures are just gorgeous. It’s been a long time since I’ve received a gift that I’ve enjoyed as much as this one. I’m not much of a winter person so I’ve been very busy creating items for spring with the help of your lovely and wonderful book and that keeps my spirit lifted. Thank you for sharing your talent with the rest of us, Sharon
E-mails like this, and seeing what you all come up with, are the reasons why I do what I do. So thank you, thank you! And while I’m at it, here are a couple of links to some other awesome adaptations from the book. Click on over.
