I tackled another chrysanthemum, and this one won my heart over. Made in Jet with a 5mm hook, in the small chrysanthemum pattern. Which is like the large chrysanthemum pattern except, you know, with less stitches.
As anyone who sees me in Civic during the week can confirm, this autumn I have become the queen of brooches (and black cardis, but that is another post altogether). I've got some many brooches that I was having trouble storing them where they wouldn't get damaged. I've had an idea for a brooch keeper ratting around in my head for the last couple of weeks, so today I made it.
I'm really happy with it. It's sturdy and very protective, and it has matroyshkas! In red! It will store my brooches safely in my smalls drawer, and I can also take it with me when I go on holidays next week. I took photos during the process of making it, so it may become a tutorial. Who knows?
This post is my 150th. I've made some amazing friends through this blog, and to thank you all for sticking around I would like to give a present to one of you. If you comment on this post I will put you in a draw, and the winner will get a project bag and a chrysanthemum flower brooch hand made by me. I haven't made them yet, but given you have until Thursday 5pm Canberra time to post, I have plenty of time to make something.
