it’s far too hot in tennessee today, especially upon the arrival of fall. but this delicious color-grown organic yarn - vegan and hypoallergenic too - has me dreaming of cooler days. cheers… { #autumn #fall #crochet #organic #sustainable #pakucho #vegan #eco #ecochic #earthy #boho #instacrochet #natural #rustic }

i can’t even express how soft and rich this vegan organic cotton yarn is. the pattern is simple, but the yarn and sustainably harvested wooden button from a fallen tree in north carolina is anything but plain. this eco-chic scarf is crafted using pakucho color-grown organic cotton yarn, fairly traded and handspun in Peru by farmers who tend the land with care and wisdom. the scarf will be available in the pendrops etsy shop today. cheers… {#eco #luxe #organic #sustainable #sustainablefarm #colorgrown #pakucho #earth #earthy #natural #vegan #woodland }

"…like stitches sewn in a rent
almost beyond repair.”
~~ Anne Lamott, “Stitches”

this is the backside of the piece i created last night. the stitches unseen, holding everything together, all the frayed and tattered scraps. the front is exquisite - at least for me it is. but there is something too about the back that tells a story. and leaves me without words.

"As far as I can recall, none of the adults in my life ever once remembered to say, ‘Some people have a thick skin and you don’t. Your heart is really open and that is going to cause pain, but that is an appropriate response to this world. The cost is high, but the blessing of being compassionate is beyond your wildest dreams.’"
~~ Anne Lamott, “Stitches”

healing through art, redemption through creation. this piece born out of a very sensitive and broken heart overflowing with gratitude… peace, friends… { #healing #hope #fiberart #peace #rustic #repurpose #recycled #upcycled #wholehearted #heart #authenticity #simple #makebeauty #givegrace #sendlove }

i don’t know a lot of fancy crochet stitches. and i don’t have much patience for crochet projects that take more than two hours. but the one thing that takes the highest priority in all pendrops creations is my materials. and my yarn is no exception. this pakucho yarn is easily above and beyond any yarn i’ve worked with in 25 years of crocheting. it is color-grown in the mountains of Peru by generations of farmers who have grown colored cotton for thousands of years. they tend the earth with mindfulness and care, intuition and gratitude. i am honored to put my hands to the task of crafting something simple and elegant with this yarn - the softest, most nuanced, luxurious yarn available. cheers… { #eco #ecochic #sustainable #simple #pakucho #crochet #instacrochet #crochetaddict #vegan #organic #rustic #recycled #repurposed #farmers #peru }

i always say that pendrops is a one-woman show…and when that one woman breaks a toe, operations are put on hold. i won’t be fulfilling orders for a couple weeks, but i can’t help creating. i wonder what pieces will arise during this season…hmm… cheers… { #broken #healing #hope #inspiration #weaving #tapestry #sustainable #simple #simplify #slowdown #authenticity  }
