Looking up from my crochet

The next task on the CAL was looking up from your work and see, what you have in your room, what is important to you. 


To me, this picture of my family is very important. It shows us as very strong women, who have lived through serious heartache, and are still standing strong. I wanted to portrait this in freeform crochet.


This is my scrumble, it has the crocodile stitch, because i have grown to be very protective of my children and grandchildren. The main color is purple, that's one of my favorite colors.


This is the scrumble of my oldest daughter, the stitch i used was the Bavarian stitch, because she likes structure. The elevated waves stand for the troubles we've overcome. Her favorite color is turquoise.


This is the scrumble of my middle daughter, the stitch i used was the bullion stitch. The reason i choose this stitch is because her path in life has been like the song "The long and winding road". The elevated single crochet stands for her past barriers. Her favorite colors are sun yellow and mint.


This is the scrumble of my youngest daughter, the stitches i used were fan half double crochet and post double crochet. The thought after this combination was her character,  she's very sweet, but she likes to keep walls up. Her favorite color is pink.


And here is the final scrumble. The four of us in a warm red frame of love keeping us strong and together.
