Hi there, and thanks for stopping by! My name is Meghann Robinson, and I love crochet and all manner of crafty distractions. I taught myself to crochet in 2014 (or re-taught if you count that time my grandmother tried to teach me when I was a child). In fact, I've included my very first post of what very likely might have become another short lived fad (BTW those were supposed to be square).
In this case my stubbornness got the better of me and crochet stuck. I found that I really loved helping people and teaching crochet. I completed the Crochet Certified Instructors Program with the Craft Yarn Council, and at this point am just awaiting my certificate.
So why Three Birds? As someone who tends to overthink everything in life and suffers from anxiety (also married to someone who does), finding healthy outlets and ways to focus my thoughts has always been key. That’s where Three Birds comes in!
My husband and I LOVE to travel, and we’ve mostly traveled around the Caribbean together. It seemed everywhere we turned we would hear Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds.” It wasn’t long before we found one of us would start singing the chorus at home and the other would finish it. Eventually we'd start singing it to the other when we were feeling stressed or anxious. Maybe it would play on the radio at home at a particularly challenging moment. It became a mantra of sorts, a reminder for us that no matter how hopeless things may feel in the moment, we would get through it, and everything would be ok. My various projects have always created a much needed outlet for some of these feelings, and so was born “Three Birds Crafting.”
