As you receive this issue of Talking Crochet, many of you will be noticing the tiniest of buds beginning to peek through the earth or sprouting leaves beginning to color the tree limbs as the sun warms our souls from winter's hibernation. As you "awaken" to a new enthusiasm for crochet, take a few minutes to relax and enjoy the informative, entertaining and inspiring features we've included for you here.
If you've ever wondered how one of our most common crochet staples -- flower motifs -- evolved from their humble beginnings, we'll tell you all about it! And you're sure to find a shawl you will want to crochet from the book we review, Exquisite Crochet Shawls.
We'll share several inspirational stories with you from readers who responded to our last newsletter. Last, but certainly not least, we've got a lovely flower-inspired valance pattern for you to make. It is sure to freshen up any window and let the sunshine in. So grab a refreshing cool drink and take a little breather as we talk crochet!
