Foraging blackberry .
I have decided to resurrect my blog and am challenging myself to show WIP of a new sensory play mat. The idea of the mat is for a colourful crocheted mat full of tiny pieces of texture and colour to inspire the imagination of babies and children. they can touch and feel all the texture of the crochet.
The mat will be in freeform crochet which like painting with yarn…no rules just pick up some yarn and do any stitches in any direction.
