I decided to have a blog in order to use crochet again , to do cross- stitch again, to learn how to sew clothes for my kids, to learn new techniques and new crafts and to embroider beautiful gifts for those I love,
I discovered crafts for charity, crafts for those who need to know that somewhere there is someone who cares for them and thinks about them.
I am a Muslim ( don’t panic) the act of giving just a smile without waiting anything back is the essence of my religion. And my religion is a part of me, I am nobody without my religion.
When I read the SOS from people in Australia experiencing huge floods on the colorful blog of Sarah London, I didn’t hesitate to take part in crocheting a rainbow operation. It is important for me to make people believe that generosity and love transcend continents, religions and beliefs. I care for people anywhere and I want to raise my kids this way…
I send a a fondant kiss to Fondant kiss through this video ( she shares crochet a rainbow project)
Spontaneous ( even at 40), I started to crochet granny squares, I didn’t respect ( didn’t have time to) the dimensions, yarns, the crochet number. Happy about myself, each time there was a commentary on Sarah’s Crochet a Rainbow article, I read it and try to have an idea about its writer. ..
And I realized that my granny squares do not fit.
The problem was not yarn, but the hook. So I looked for the right hook, I bought many, asked friends to bring me theirs, no way to find the right one. I asked friends in Algiers. Even there, no hooks for my rainbow.
So I gathered all my courage and phoned to my sister-in-law who lives near Paris :”please bring 3 and 3,5 mm hooks, it’s urgent and vital for me”. She came Last friday and I do actually have my hooks.
And I started the right granny squares and I feel happy thanks so much for all your encouragements.
My rainbow will be for all the ones who needs colorful hope for a better tomorrow. My thoughts go to people in Japan also. We will be there for you.
(to be continued...)
