GRANNY SQUARE PROJECT!

I have finally finished my granny square project that I orginially started in May 2009. This project was inspired by Vanessa and her colourful crochet squares! I'll give you a little peak first - I am so pleased with the result.

My mum is a super sewer! She has very kindly sewn the lining into the bag which is made from a Liberty of London cotton lawn - very soft. The handles are reinforced with iron-on interfacing. I cannot wait to use it. I carefully selected the colours to match my current wardrobe!

Do you like it - I hope you do!

Before I go I thought I would let you see what I have been designing and making! A new brooch - what a surprise!

I wanted to produce a brooch with a very modern, arty look! I looked at paintings by Kandinsky and Miro and as a result this new circular design was born! It has lots of fine detail!
