Inspiration of the shape of the project will have to wait. The color and crochet where inspired by Phipps Conservancy in Pittsburgh. They have a toddler storytime where they read books, then either do crafts or plant flowers. CJ loves it, and I love the venue. On one of our trips we stumbled into the Japanese garden. CJ was in love with the bridge and secret passageways. It was easy to be inspired to add more Japanese crochet into my work and use a neutral color to let the crochet shine.
