Crochetkari: Waiting for Inspiration...?

Waiting for Inspiration...?

...Then you will be waiting forever!

Hello friends, how are you? Eagerly looking forward to the new month?  I know I am, as hubby's birthday is on 28th of August.

I am afraid I have not been posting as much as I want to, and I can give umpteen excuses for that. And that is what they actually are...just silly excuses. Because, I firmly believe that if you really want to do something you have dozens of "reasons" for doing it, but if you don't want to do it then you have hundreds of "excuses".

Just when I was thinking up an "excuse" to begin this post... you know, like the weather was dull, my photos were bad, my neck was acting up etc, explain my tardiness, I came across this video which shut me up for good. Wondering what I am babbling about? Then you must watch this video. I have already shared it on my Facebook page, and I thought I should share it here too in case you are not a fan of my page.

Please click on the image to see the video.

Did you watch the video? Let me know if the link is not working.

I find this woman to be really remarkable. Picking up a craft/skill you already know is one thing, but to actually learn something new after losing one's eyesight is simply fantastic!! What courage and determination this woman has! She has motivated me to once again try my hand at sewing and tatting.... two things that I always felt I will not be able to do.

So, if you have always been wanting to learn something new, but never have because of "no time", "I don't know how", "I can't do it" or "I am not good enough".........I hope this video pushes you in the right direction.

Did you enjoy this video? Let me have your comments. Yes, go on write to me, make my day. I will be back soon with my latest projects (minus excuses). LOL

"Til then, keep crafting and have fun.  :)


  1. Oh yes, I enjoyed this video - she is an amazing woman. All of her quilts are beautiful. Thanks for sharing this with us. :)

  2. Hi :( I can not see the link for the video hence could'nt see it. How have you been?

    What you say is true. What we like, and love to do, we do find time. For the rest, we tend to find excuses and over a period of time become experts in spinning excuses. We must build a habit for not giving excuses. Its all in the mind.

  3. Amazing. Thanks so much for sharing the video. As for the "excuses", I think we all do that from time to time. I'm finding myself doing it now but I'm just taking one day at a time and getting back in the groove. Glad to see you again.


  4. Hi! Sangeetha, hope you are doing fine. Glad to see you again.
