Two blog project. First square.

If you remember, we, me and my friend Kristina, started a two blog project. You can read about it here. The main point was - Kristina makes a photo and I use this photo as an inspiration and make a crochet square. Later this squares will be joined in a blanket.
Today I'm ready to present my first square.
So, Kristina's photo was this:

And here is what I made:


A close-up for you to see how I made it.


Of course I had to make it much more simple than the original picture and as my husband said it doesn't look exactly like the picture, but the main idea was to use the picture as an inspiration, not as a pattern, so I think I made it quite good. And I like the result. Do you?

Be inspired! A two blog project.

As we all know, it's good to have friends. And it's even better to have creative friends who inspire you. This is what happens between me and my friend Kristina who is a photographer. And as we bot have blogs (mine about crafts, hers about photography) we decided to make a two blog project.
So, the idea is following: she takes a picture of something that caught her eye and I make a 20x20 cm crochet square using her picture as an inspiration. It won't be any old style granny squares, I want to create something totally new and modern. And, when there is enough squares, I will make a blanket from them to represent all our work in one big project.
If someone is interested in taking part and creating something beeing inspired with Kristina's photos you are more than wellcome to join us! All crocheters, knitters, quilters, artists are wellcome! Just let us know and share the links to your finished square in comments :) Here you also can find an original blog post from Kristina about our little project.

Now it's time for the first picture from Kristina. Here it is in all it's beauty:

Looks cool as I like orange :)
So, stay in touch and see what I can crochet from this :)
