It is the skilled hands of a special kind of person that transform craft supplies into a work of art.

Some of my favorite quotes are from well-known artists.  People who shaped the world with their perspectives, their vision, and words.

Some can say it,

Many paint it, and

The rest of us create with our mediums of choice.

“We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.” 

— Ernest Hemingway   

Hemingway’s experience of his life depicts ours.

To be honest, crochet is an exceptionally good example of how true his words are.

A YARN Funny!

I was searching for yarn in my house the other day, and let me tell you, I was totally surprised and impressed.

I was impressed with my ability to buy yarn – LOADS of it.

I forgot just how many different crates and bags and shopping bags and boxes of yarn I already had.

Suffice it to say that I could probably see this year out without having to buy more yarn.

BUT, you know, you don’t play the Lottery only once either.

I might never buy yarn again Yarn meme to enjoy Quote for yarn lovers on  Craft Quotes, The Funny Sayings and Creative Puns

  1. I Amanda Nel 🙂 I really love this. Pinned it and tweeted 🙂 It’s easy to come up with excuses but it’s a discipline to choose grace.

  2. I absolutely love this. I’ve pinned it to come back to again and again.

    Grace is something I’ve seen a lot of lately, and I’m grateful for that. It’s also made me more aware when I am NOT granting grace. I need to be more open minded, we all make mistakes, we are human and we don’t know everything. That doesn’t stop us from making decisions, sadly at times. But we aren’t infallible and I need to grant grace. Thanks for the reminder!
