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)

Location: Toronto Ontario Canada

How did you get started crocheting?: Hm... I learned this from school, actually from my mom first, and tried so many things, then I became a crochet flower person...

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..

What is your favorite material to crochet with?: so far, yarn, I haven't try to crocheted something else, such as fabric..

What is your favorite color(s)?: I love black, white, orange, green, purple.

Do you use patterns to create your flowers or do you create them on your own?: Well, I don't use pattern, it just like a free-hand crochet. Well, you do need a pattern for some parts, but each of flowers is different.

Do you have any other hobbies?: Yes, Papercuting. I learned this from my grad-parents...when I was little, I did a lot of project for city, magazine...etc.
