Hello, and welcome to my blog.

My name is Lavender George and I love to make things. I have been painting, creating and crafting since a small child, firstly from sheer pleasure, and when my children were small, and money was tight, from necessity. Now I hope to make art my main source of income and keep the sewing, crochet and knitting for fun.
I hope you enjoy looking at the things I make, and reading about my inspiration and work in progress.

A Hippy, Summer-of-Love style Handbag

I was given this handbag some years ago by a friend and it has been a very well used summer staple. However, I thought it was looking a little tired, so I crocheted some purple, lavender and pink flowers and a little white butterfly and sewed them onto the front to refresh it and bring it up to date for this year's 70's inspired fashions. It will look lovely with a long maxi dress, crochet waistcoat and gladiator sandals, or palazzo pants, vest top, floppy 70's hat and big sunglasses. Fab! Now all I need is the summer .......and some love!
