The Pom Pom Fall Collection



“After the meals were served and the dishes were done, Grandma Amy would sit quietly by the big living-room window that looked out over a rolling green pasture and work on her crocheting. She always seemed so happy and peaceful working with her yarns.” – Tom Clark.

Disclaimer: Crocheting is not only for grandmothers. And in my case, the dishes don’t have to be done, and meals served yet.

I go through crocheting spurts, so this what I worked on for the past few days. This was all 3 balls of yarn so happy with how many hats got made and there’s still some yarn left over. These are some hats I made for friends and family. I love the way the pompoms turned out and crocheting is really therapeutic and soothing for the soul!

wanted to show the hat trim detail above! Like how Z has a scratch on her nose – gives the photo character, but not sure how she got it!

More hats to come later!



About Doodling Through Life

I doodle. All the time. Doodling helps me make sense of the world around me. When I doodle, whether it be swirls or figurines, I am transformed to a world in which my doodles live, and my thoughts become clear. My mind breathes. Through my art medium of pencils, paint, potting soil, and pixels, I thrive. I am a teacher and have taught 2nd grade in Fulton County Schools in Atlanta, Georgia for 4 years. I am currently a Stay-At-Home-Mommy to a ___ daughter (she was born in June 2010—you can do the math !) and a ___ preschooler (she was born November 2012) who is exploring my creative outlet via the aforementioned 4 P’s! So far, I’m an author whose book Lailah’s Lunchbox was published in 2015 via Tilbury House Publishing. I have 2 new picture books projected for 2019: Amira's Picture Day (Holiday House, 2019) and Let Me Show You The Way (Eerdmans, 2019)! I’m an Atlanta based children-family-lifestyle photographer on weekends. Thank you for stopping by!
