A Tale of Two Brooches

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.

Speaking of crochet, thank you so much everyone for your lovely comments on my first pattern :)

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.


  1. Beautiful Madam I love you! This feature of my brooch makes me swoon. I am so glad to know that you received it, and it didn't get waylaid in the mail system. You are marvelous my friend. It looks way cool. Lots of appreciation and *smiles* from me. Norma, xo

  2. Your very welcome Norma, thankyou :)
