It took me a while to figure out the plural of brooch, nothing looked right, in fact brooches just doesn't look right at all but according to google it is.
I do love wearing brooches, they just work so well with my love of thin knit cardies, dresses and boots.
The lovely handmade brooch above that I wore to meet mum in town last week, was made by the talented lady Norma Conway from http://thefairyyellowbugqueen.blogspot.co.uk/, and I was lucky enough to win it in a giveaway of hers :)
I love the way artists come up with so many ways of using mixed media to create something completely different.
Here Norma has used canvas to paint the toadstool picture onto, and has then crocheted around the edge.
I am working on a larger version this week, one more of the size I like in a brooch, and hope to have it online in the next couple of days.
Designing crochet patterns appeals so much to my logical mathematical brain, like solving a puzzle, a way that I can create art that satisfies all aspects of me.
I always thought I wasn't artistic, but I think you just have to find a way that works for you.
