Straight From the HeART with Brenda Sahawneh

I spoke to Brenda in early March when I asked a simple question about our memories connected to crochet. Several people were very open to sharing their experiences and memories. Many times they shape who we are.

Brenda says:
‘My childhood wasn’t the best by far. The only time I ever really remember ever feeling truly happy was when I was spending time with my mamaw and papaw! My mamaw taught me how to crochet when I was 14. She taught me all the stitches in one day. I made my very first granny square pillow (all with her yarn), which she then bought from me for $20.00. My little sister has that pillow today and she treasures it not only because it was given to her after our mamaws’ passing away, but because I made it. Now I am about to turn 50 in April. Every time I work on a project, it’s like I have a little piece of my mamaw with me at that moment.

Therapy I tell ya, it’s the best!

I just enjoy creating things out of practically nothing, and I like working with my hands. And I get a feeling of a great accomplishment once finished and I get to stand back and look at the work I’ve done.’

  • What's your take on #minimalism? .
.
.
Well, I realized my tote was cramming full of things I don't even need!
.
 There were receipts and other stuff sitting at the bottom of my bag for the past few months. Ring a bell?
.
.
.
I knew I wanted to take the #minimalist route and this cute clutch is just perfect for starters. 
Having a tote as small as this reminds me to only keep the essentials. .
.
.
