Origami and a Crochet Poem!! :)

Hello dear friends,

I am happy to share this post about a guarded treasure in our home . This treasure is owned by the gem of my family - my daughter, Anshita ! She is nine years old and loves to do Origami , the art of paper folding and enjoys writing poems .

On one fine day, she just flipped through the pages of one of my crochet books and to my surprise, wrote a poem for me :) , that too on Crochet !! . She is a very good writer and her class teacher admires her a lot !

I have typed her poem , unedited , at the end of this post. Please do read ; I am sure you will enjoy reading it as much as I did :) 

Origami paper top and it spins too !

Origami books and Origami bookshelf

Origami Caterpillars, are they going to eat the entire Origami Christmas tree ?

A cute little Origami frock for her !

An Origami tuxedo for him !

Origami shirts, if the Tuxedo doesn't fit him !

A Crochet Poem for my Mamma !
Do you know the stitch called loop,
With which you can make an amigurumi troop?
Do you know the shells,
Which bring you under spells?
Just look into the world,
Of stitches uncurled!
Bobbles and beads,
There’s more to that you’ll need.
“P” is the short form for picot,
The short form for yarn over is “YO”.
Do you know hairpin?
It’s a needle, not a pin!
Do you know how to make 3D flowers,
Which have magical powers?
Then there is a slip knot,
That you can make while sleeping on a cot!
May I ask you about stripes?
That I can do with a few needle swipes!
So you will now agree,
That crochet is the toughest art you ever can see!
