stitchedupmama is my alter ego and by now a lot of people know who i really am

it’s time to come clean – this is me, and this is also me

so – it’s a secret no longer …

i wrote the words below this photo when i started this blog …

previous ‘about’ description –

stitcheupmama is my secret

it is the rebellious subversive side of my character

it would surprise people who know me or think they know me

soon my town will find out that stitchedupmama is a resident

they will see her artistry in unexpected places

things will never be the same again

  1. Hello, thanks for the likes and comment on my posts. It’s the first time I come across the term “subversive crochet” and I was soooo pleasantly surprised. I love your flower power and your hat is simply gorgeous!!! This kind of crochet is for me brand new and I’m already a fan! Hope to see more of your inspiring work. All the best.

    • Thanks so much for visiting and for your lovely comments! I made up the term ‘subversive crochet’, to describe what I was/am doing with yarn and hook, which is probably why you haven’t come across it before … I’m so glad you’ve become a fan of it and to have given you some inspiration. =D

  2. Hi Rita and all your wonderfully creative alter ego’s! I love you already, you are a true artist with a wonderful spirit. Thank you for all your kind words on my blog and for following yipeeee! I am really looking forward to more and more of your posts x

  3. How could I not follow when the word subversive is involved!! Never done any freeform crochet yet but one day… I’m relatively new to it all. Had to follow your gonerustic blog too. Love stitchy things.

    • I used to follow patterns mostly, but since I started ‘playing’ it’s been a really rewarding and fun journey! Low-stress, too, as I’m not usually expecting anything in particular when I start. Hope you give it a try! And thanks for your comment and follows =D

  4. Thanks for dropping by my blog so thought I’d come and say hello. Your work is amazing and so creative. When I look at it I see a free-spirit that’s expressing herself in her art. Good luck in any future endevors.

  5. Have just mentioned you regarding yarn bombing in my latest post and have also nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award – Congratulations!! head over and visit if you want to know whats involved however if you are too busy or not able to accept for other reasons, just take it as a compliment from one blogger to another!!

  6. I love the skill, craftsmanship and beautiful colours manifested in your crochet. This is a true gift that needs to be passed on for future generations; a labour of love and artistic beauty. πŸ™‚
