Crochet forces woman out of my coma

Standard

I am coming out of the funk that goes by the name of “Pandemic. You would think with all the extra time I had to myself that I would have painted more, crocheted more, created more, but I barely did any of that. Sure I crocheted 500 lollipops in 2020 but because of the pandemic I couldn’t pull off a yarnbomb safely for me and others. 2020 proved to be a very grief filled year for me in that I lost my Mom in May and my dog on Christmas Eve. Looking back, I can now say that I need to cut myself some slack and not worry about how productive I was. I came through it all and now….

Now that restrictions are lifted, my fingers are ferociously hooking up a storm. I’ve created an Easter parade of larger amigurumi and I’ve also raised over $500 for Ukrainian Humanitarian Emergency by crocheting blue and yellow hearts.

I always get pulled back to crochet and people seem to really love it. They’ve loved the Easter Parade so much that I can barely keep up but I will do my very best.

I am working on a Spring yarnbomb because those lollipops have to go somewhere! If I get the go ahead from the location I want, you can look for Lollipalooza sometime in May. In the meantime, enjoy the parade. And yes I do take requests but remember, I only have 4 fingers and two thumbs and I hold down a day job soooooo, it won’t be a fast amigurumi fix for anyone. I’ve said this for years but it holds so true since 2020, “patience is no longer a virtue, it is a necessity.”

BITS AND BOBS

Ukrainian colours for Ukrainian Aid during $10 each/shades of blue and yellow may vary according to yarn availability but they are all blue and yellow. (100% of proceeds go to Canada Ukrainian Foundation)
The making of this 3 foot beast kept me sane during the Convoy Occupation. I lived the month of February completely surrounded by angry, honking, obnoxious and delusional truckers. I was basically a prisoner in my own home and that is why this creature is amply named Occupus. SOLD
