It's teachers day today , celebrated in all Indian schools all over the world. A day to give thanks and tribute to those wonderful and important people in our lives and in the lives of our children who play such an important role in our upbringing.--- Wow! that's long sentence! Jibbs wanted me to make a gift for his teacher. So he's taking with him a lovely rose , a bookmark and a Hobo bag. Yes, I can't stop making those bags!!! It's my fourth one so far. And the best of all , a card made and written out by Jibs himself.
There always semm to be many days dedicated to different events. And I've always enjoyed these themes. But one of best is cominmg soon. Our favourite hookmaker gentleman , JIMBO ,has introduced a day specially to the crochetrs all over the world. He has announced the 12th of September to be INTERNATIONAL CROCHET DAY. Check it out at his Blog. He is even giving away a gorgeous crochet hook to mark the occasion.
Now , I find this concept very interesting. What could we do on a special day like this , especially since the only crocheter I know out here is me!!! First, I'm going to send out my lot of crocheted and knitted baby things for charity ( remember , the Knitting for charity ? ) and then I'm going to try my best to find some poor unsuspecting soul and bless her life with crochet...yes, I'm going to teach someone. What better way to honour this wonderful craft than passing it on to another.
Since its back to school time for my little fella , I do have some free crochet time in the mornings. I intend to write up the patterns of some of my new designs and complete some UFOs. Maybe , I'll ask for testers!!
So what do you think you will be doing for this new day? Any ideas? I'd have loved a get together of crocheters but I have to first find some crocheters out here!!
