A work of craft

Recently I have been absolutely blown away by some beautiful pieces of craft work that I have seen on various blogs. There are some genuine master pieces being created by some genuine masters (mistresses?) of their respective crafts and so, I thought that I would share a few of these with you.

First is the Twisted Yarn’s rainbow stained glass window afghan. This is truly beautiful and a real labour of love.

Second is Kate Chiconi’s tree of life quilt… a gift for her brother that she’s travelling half way round the world to deliver.

Third is Nana Cathy’s crochet squares blanket… all her own work, unlike my own blanket.

Fourth is The Grange Range’s baby boots… so detailed!

Fifth is Dani’s Bavarian crochet, which I have to include because I know it is even more lovely in reality than in the photograph.

And, finally, for now Mollybean’s slouchy blanket, which she is very modest about, but I think is beautiful.

I don’t want to infringe anyone’s copyright, so I haven’t posted the pictures here, just the links. You can see them all if you go to my Master Pieces Pinterest board, which I will be adding to from now on. For this page, you’ll just have to make do with my Masterpiece in its current form:

  2. The masterpiece is looking stunning already! Hope you’re weaving in all those ends…
    Meanwhile, thank you so much for linking to my afghan. I love the other pieces you’ve mentioned, especially the tree of life quilt – that really is stunning.

    • I’m feeling very smug that most of the ends are woven in… and very grateful that most of my contributors have already done it for the individual squares that they send.

  3. All beautiful masterpieces, I love Nana Cathy’s squares, I really like that scrappy look. One of the talented ladies in the charity knitting group I belong to knitted the stained glass window afghan to raffle and raise money for the group……it was a stunning piece of artwork, as is Twisted Yarn’s. I’ve just held my square up to the screen to see how it’ll look with the others, quite nice I think. I’m about to write my blurb and then head out to the post office….

  11. I’m blown away by the talent out there. You ladies are a creative bunch. What a shame there isn’t a man out there with work to show. I know there are males who knit so surely there must be some who crochet too.
    Congratulations to you all on such vibrant and varied product.
