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.
If you would like to purchase any paintings you can find my shops at:

A Red Summer Hat

Here is a red straw hat I made from a straw cone. I blocked the crown in my millinery evening class and wired the brim and added the trimming at home. It's a bit wonky, but then so is my head! The sun has finally reappeared, and I'm off out tomorrow on the New Forest Tour Bus, so I will wear it then.
