and to discover that sometimes - to my delight and surprise -
others are inspired by this tiny blog... (Yay!)
Like recently, there were suddenly quite a few visitors
from South Korea to my blog (btw, a country I'd love to visit once).
On which I discovered a lovely South Korean crochet blog
with a 'remake' of my popcorn potholder (remember? this one!)
in similar colours and styling.
This was confusing in a funny way:
At first glance it looked like my own photo,
but there was something slightly different...
Go check it out here!
Recently it worked the other way round
when I came across the wonderful Portugese blog Mi Mitrika
with gorgeous pictures and amazing crochet work. What a delight...
I discovered it on the blogroll of another lovely blog: Pigtails. (Thanks!)
One of the pictures of Mi Mitrika was that of a placemat or doily in bright colours, with lots of red (a colour I normally hardly ever use)
But I was smitten...
So I shamelessly made my own and used a lot of red too.
Although admittedly her colour combi is better - with mustard/ochre
which I didn't have in my stash.
Anyway - it's nice to go bright for a change!
As you can see I got my enamel out too. :-)
Thanks for the inspiration.
Have a bright day!
