Playing with Free Form

This has been a busy summer so far. The new boat is fantastic and has been taken out on the lake every chance we get! My husband has definitely gotten his quota of Bass, Walleye and perch. The weather has been cooperating nicely:0) Rainy days, best for hubby to fish and sunny for the days when we invite friends to the sandbank islands for a day at the beach.

This free form scrumble I did for the "major" project I told about earlier (don't worry, the time has almost come for me to reveal the juicy details:0) reminds me of the waves on the water on a windy day.

This one almost reminds me of a crocodile's eye! Can't you just picture him, eye watching you as he swims with his head just poking out of the water!

This scrumble was a particularly pretty one. Very lacy looking. It reminds me of a swirl in the sand at the beach.
This little guy was supposed to be a bit more 3-d for my project. Unfortunately, he ended up looking more like the ones you find flattened on the side of the road! He might make a cute sea life coaster though. I think he needs some googly eyes :)

I've just recently taken up free form crochet. I was always hesitant to try it as I thought there were certain "rules" you had to follow. Then I purchased Myra Wood's new book "Creative Crochet Lace" which explains free form in such a fun and easy to understand way, that you can't wait to grab your hook and yarns and start playing! She really makes you look at crochet in a whole new way.
