This is definitely a One of a Kind scarf that I could in no way plan ahead as this beautiful Dragonfly decided to land on one of my designs while I was selling them at the local Farmers Market. I hadn’t seen it land and had no idea it was there until I went to grab the scarf and felt something strange. I of course preceded to scream in surprise, then a “yuck” followed suit (only because it felt so strange). The surprising part is that the Dragonfly continued to sit there for a while as I showed it off to some of the customers that were looking at my scarves. This One of a Kind Design is a “natural choice”! I was honoured to have this huge Dragonfly come by for a visit only to be blessed a second time as another one landed on a different scarf later that day. Apparently my designs make a great place for Nature to hang out!
This brings me to a picture I took last week of this beautiful spider web. I was instantly inspired by the design and thought about how a spider is likely Natures best crocheter. Ever sit and watch a spider make a web, it is like they are crocheting. I sat and watched one on my porch one morning while having my coffee and was intrigued at the technique of such a small creature. Looking at the spider web closely made me realize how inspiration can even be from the insect world. I hadn’t thought about insects as a source of inspiration before, but now I am awakened at the idea of a new venue to draw from. Who knows where this new direction will take me.
How does Nature inspire you?
