secrets revealed (or of cats and bags)

okay, here it is. this is a first laying-down of the first piece for this big crochet project i have been dreaming of/hooking up. named 'hive series,' the project should eventually encompass a collection of pieces. i am not sure how many, yet. this first one is still a few triangles short (and the stitching is going to be equally laborious to the crochet, i presume), but it was pretty thrilling to see so much of it together.

the possible configurations are mind-boggling, so i think my end layout will probably have more to do with fate than planning (fatalism being a character flaw of mine).

so...there. something.

shannon said...

sweetie pie press said...

shannon said...
