Parisian Champagne Throw

ILC_August_small-56

Motifs built upon motifs create a whimsical and visually entertaining throw. Four small motifs come together, and are bordered to create a larger motif. As the squares dip slightly in the center of the side, these are left un-joined to create an open effect. The construction of this throw allows it to be a join-as-you-go that is still very portable.

Swirling Valley Circular Throw

ILC_August_small-53

Worked in a spiral of 6 colors and finished with a row of shell edging, this attractive design will capture the imagination of anyone who sees it. I can always get ideas from the garden, and a whirly gig twirling in the yard lead to the envisioning of this design.

Boogie Woogie Pillow

ILC_August_small-66

Inspired by Mondrian’s “Broadway Boogie Woogie” painting, this pillow is also playful and light in spirit because of the color choices Mondrian made. Instead of using black, he used white and when combined with a few bright colors, the composition becomes a little slice of happy.

This pillow embraces this bold green inspired by nature with motifs designed to resemble fresh white flower petals that have just exploded in bloom surrounded by motifs that resemble flower buds that are just about to do the same.

Reminiscent of French macaron cookies, these delightful scrubbies look good enough to eat. Thanks to the three layers of crochet, these scrubbies are durable; plus, they are so versatile they will be useful anywhere around the house, whether you use them to add some whimsy to your dish washing or keep them near the living room in case of emergency spills.
