For today, as it's going to be a zippy post, I thought I'd catch up on some old friends of chaincreative, Marianne of Heegeldab fame and Alicia Paulson from Posie gets Cosy. Both are such creative people and they're always worth keeping an eye on. Something new all the time!
Marianne is particularly prolific with her jewellery and crochet and I particularly liked her new 'poppy' designs. This necklace looks so simple but has a real power to it. Marianne's influences are rooted in the nature around her and the purse also has that wonderful fresh feel about.
Alicia has been busy with many things as her blog shows but I particularly liked the homely feel of these felted figures for Christmas. I know they're not strictly crochet but as chaincreative is going to venture into the world of felt after our return, I thought it was allowed!
