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.

Two Wedding Fascinators

This is the first of two fascinators I made for my friend's wedding at the end of April. This is a 1950's inspired fascinator made with a teardrop base, which I covered in a mauve shot silk material. I then added a small frilled circle from the same material, a mauve button and three small pink feathers.
Here is the second fascinator I made. This is made from a straw circle base onto which I have sewn a bright orange feather flower corsage, and black sinamay whirls, which I made by hand.
