Crochet addiction
and brooches

i have recently started to learn how to crochet
with the help of the wonderful Natasha and i
never expected it to be so addictive!

i have started to bring the crochet hooks everywhere
and was up 'til 4 in the morning finishing
off a scarf the other night- i just could not
put it down 'til it was finished!

the picture above shows some of the things i have
made so far, lets start with the really crookedly looking
flat thing in two different brown tones...
its not finished, its definitely not perfect, but i love it
nonetheless as it was the first thing i made!

and one day im turning it into a cushion!

the grey and yellow flowers are the start of a shawl
i got about 8 flowers made so far...
just another 157 or so to go!

the big flowers (yup, i love flowers!)
are being turned into brooches,
they will be available to buy in the shop soon!

i really enjoy making little brooches and when
emile the cat was sold earlier this week i made a
'mini emile' brooch to come with him to his new home!

-gonna miss you emile-
be nice to your lovely new owner!
