This are amazing, imagine what patience it takes!
Also, there something that reminds me of the moon in the first two.
But I am most amazed at those crocheted lions...I can hardly crochet a pot holder! How amazing is that!

Hi Bobbi

both are really incredible when you think of the hours that has been dedicated to the creation of one object. I think its a rare thing in this day and age we have become impatient and seem to need to multitasking on a daily basis. Dedication seems to be a dying trait.

Thanks for popping in to say hello its nice to see you and your cute kitty in the comments box.

QUITE amazing. i've wondered at the patience i'm sometimes discovering in me, when i do one or other project, but when i see these kind of works, i just give up. stunning.

I agree with you :)

I have been this patient in the past but I feel like I jump all over the place now working on several projects at the one time.
I get restless big time.
