Invite to an Art Party

This month I've decided to join in with the Etsian Artists Art Party. The members of this team work in various media so it's very exciting to see their work. To quote the leader, Lizzy Love, the idea is to interpret a given theme through your own medium. This month's theme is 'bazaar'.

For me it's an excuse to get away from the gentle colours of organic cotton and venture into the world of vibrant colour. My inspiration has come from the souks of Morocco.

and from a wonderfully supportive group on Flickr Buscando Comienzos Desafío Manta Hueco Zig Zag. I'm sure that the group members and Helen in particular will be there if I get stuck.

I've decided to make a crochet throw based on a design of a Moroccan rug.

The wool has been ordered and I'm itching to get started. I'll show you the colours when they arrive.

You can find out more about the Art Party on the Etsian Artists blog
