FATW5 is coming closer and closer to the finale. Week 39 – A Mother’s Heart by Dania Olsen. Dania has been a long time member of CAL – Crochet A Long Facebook Group, and participated in our Design-A-Scarf Contest and won 3rd place with her Invisible Love Shawl (which you can find HERE)!
Here is the heartwarming story behind this beautiful square….. along with a few other things, from Dania, herself:
I’m very honored to take part in designing a square for the FATW5CAL.
The idea to do something with hearts came naturally, because my mother‘s love for hearts is catching. She loved hearts in all forms, may it be stones in the shape of hearts or hearts on garments, you get my drift…
On a sad sidenote I have to confess, that this square is now a tribute to my mother, because she died very unexpectedly last May. In her lastweek I couldn’t hold on any longer and showed her my square to brighten her last days. She said that she really loved it and would have had me make a cushion out of it if she would lived any longer. And I’m sure, this cushion will be made someday…
So, here‘s my square: A Mother‘s Heart. I really hope you enjoy making this square as much as I had fun with the designing process. Now spread the love for my mother, Silke. Thanks from the bottom of my heart!
And on to the important bits……
We do so hope to see all of your completed squares and progress photos for FATW5…… please share in our Facebook Group HERE. Please bear with us as we work out some technical glitches that seem to have our Extra Rounds Files and Blog Articles *not* where they should be at the appropriate times…. if not missing completely. We are working diligently to resolve these issues!!! 💗💗
Until next time…..
