Crocheters Block

I'm really struggling at the moment with crochet block, I just don't seem to be able to settle on anything in particular. I'm desperate to start a new project but I just can't seem to mentally get myself into the right place to begin. If I flick through my iPad I have literally a thousand different photo's of items that i've come across and fallen in love with so I've snap-shotted a picture of it, with the intention of making something similar as my next project, but nothing's grabbing me. It's sooooooooo frustrating.

Something I have wanted to try for a very long time is tapestry crochet or "graphghan". Before I fell in love with crochet, my Mum taught me to knit. (Shucks! Hush my naughty mouth for mentioning the "K" word!) And I particularly enjoyed intarsia knitting, so a graphghan is something I'd love to try. It does seem to be quite a new thing (I may be wrong here) and I haven't been able to find many patterns for it, but I have watched a couple of tutorials on YouTube so I think this may well be my next project.

I found this one doing a search on Yahoo. It's pretty amazing isn't it! The hours of work that must have gone in to produce it is mind boggling.

This one too, the lady who made this is so talented

I love the colours and the style of this afghan

I absolutely love this little red cardinal, I love the Nordic style too

Another great piece of art

And this bag is really really great.

But the block is still there and I just can't seem to get past it, so for now I'll keep searching for something fantastic and for inspiration to strike!
