Free-form Crafting

Hey there bloggy friends. Made it to another day of A to Z blogging and for "F" I have decided to blog about free-form crafting. Here are a few definitions of free-form via

Characterized by free form: free-form sculpture.

Not organized or planned in a conventional way.

Encouraged to function or evolve without advance planning; spontaneous.

Without restrictions or preconceptions: The children were allowed to paint free-form

Mind-Boggling free-form crochet by the International Freeform Artists Guild

Beautiful free-form quilting by Shirley Barter

Drop Dead Gorgeous free-form beadwork by Ibolya Ingesne' Barkoczi

I am so envious of those blessed with the skill and courage to fearlessly create such beautiful free-form designs. I hope you enjoyed the pics. Gotta go exercise the right side of my brain now.  ;)

TTYL and make it a great night,

Good grief, I've never heard of free-form crochet and that's what I do! I don't mean to, and I am really not taking advantage of it(different yarns/textures here I come!). I just can't read a darned pattern. And if I managed to understand what they're saying with all that code, I never have the patience to follow through row by row.

Fabulous post :)

Beautiful "F" post!
I love the free form crochet sweater, but I will just have to admire from afar! I enjoy crochet, but my talent extends to an edging around a blanket!
