True Art in Crochet



I am in awe of my next spot light guest. I've shared that I am new to the hobby of crochet and I love it. You know how you don't really notice a particular car model until you own it and then all of a sudden you see that car everywhere? Well that is how it's been with me and crochet recently. I notice it everywhere and I am strongly drawn to the many creations and artist involved.

I saw my next guest on Etsy and had the immediate urge to check out her shop. She is a true crochet artist. I can only dream of being so talented. In the meantime, I will enjoy looking at her creations and admiring the talent, hardwork and time spent to create each of her pieces.

Li was kind enough to answer a few questions for me today, as I wanted to get to know her a little better and I thought you may be curious as well.

Your Name: Li Sui (really short, haha, only 5 letters, I still remember that when I graduated from school, my name was the easiest name to find in the booklet)

How long have you been crocheting?: More than 10 years..:) don't guess my age..

How many hours does it take you to complete a piece?: usually will be 3 days..but I feel I am like a machine, first crochet this part, second. third.....but I love this..
