Hello Yarnies <3
To be honest, I am totally lost for words. Seeing all the spectacular BotaniCAL quilts, I have been in total and complete awe! All I can say is 'wow'!
Because of you <3
At Yarnish HQ, we are so impressed by your beautiful makes, whether you have crocheted the last picot or are still working on the center bloom, we are blown away!
This has been a long road. When you begin a CAL, you start with a huge level of enthusiasm. The thought of starting a new project, feeling all those beautiful un-worked balls of yarn, receiving the prelude - it all feels so magical in those first few hours of any long project.
But....We aren't new to the crochet game, we know this feeling can be tested. Miscounting stitches; not having the time to crochet due to demanding kiddies and hubby; seeing your fur-baby run off with a completed block! The stress of doing a CAL is totally real! We get it.
I think the most amazing aspect of any CAL, separate to holding your beautiful completed work, is the sense of comradery and mateship (or womanship!) as you work on a mutual project. We saw our community really come together and help one another and it was beautiful to see.
So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you, our beautiful Yarnies, for making our first Crochet-Along so special and magical.
This was an epic journey, but every stitch was so enjoyable because of you. And you know what they say about long journeys: 🎵 just keep stitching, just keep stitching! 🎵
So here they are, some of the completed BotaniCAL quilts from our Yarnish Community.
