Each year our International Freeform Crochet group votes on a theme. I voted for the recycling theme and was disappointed with the winning theme; it did not inspire me at all. I wanted to use recycled hosiery yarn and had an ocean floor in mind. I almost decided not to participate, but I had always been sorry that I didn't participate in the 2008 challenge because that theme also didn't appeal to me.

And then it hit me: I could write my own story. I could make the story about recycling. And about turning lemons into lemonade.
