Yarn Along...


 With Valentine's Day less than a week away, I've been thinking
red & ♥hearts♥...
 And  tiny huggable teddies small enough to tuck into gifts...
 And then it's Easter :-)
 So the hearts were crocheted in pastels ...
Reading "Simply Imperfect" .  It happened to be displayed at the Library the other day while I was there picking up a hold.  I was drawn to the simplicity of the cover and once I opened the pages I knew it was going in my book bag!
I hadn't heard of Wabi Sabi (although we've apparently been living the Wabi Sabi lifestyle).  The Wabi Sabi view is one which celebrates nature and it's cycles ~ EMBRACES imperfection. I was not surprised to find that Thoreau (whose writings I adore & fill up a good portion of my Quote books) was considered a Wabi person ♥

You have some sweeet hearts here. Even the pastel hearts are sweet. After all we don't stop loving just because Valentines day is over. I have heard Q speak of Wabi Sabi living. I haven't investigated it as yet. I just live. Don't have a name for it other than life.

I love Wabi Sabi too! I also had that experience, upon learning of the aesthetic - that moment of Aha, there's a name for this appreciation of mine. A heady moment. I must find that book you're reading!

I enjoyed gazing at your knitted lovelies.
