crochet crush : Sophie Digard at Selvedge Drygoods

Good morning all, ooops! It's just past twelve so I should be saying good afternoon... ;)

I'm running a wee bit late today thanks to a huge pile of paperwork that needs doing, but not to worry it does get better this afternoon as I need to do a wee stock take on my yarn stash. Hopefully it will show me just how much yarn I don't have and how much I should go out and buy asap! However, it is more likely that my yarn 'situation' will be quite the opposite... *sigh*

Anyhoo, today I'd like to share with you something very cute and quirky. Have you seen these wonderful brooches by Sophie Digard? I stumbled upon them a few days ago in the Selvedge drygoods online shop and haven't been able to stop thinking about them!

I haven't been able to find out much about them but they do look like they could have been inspired by children's drawings. They have such a wonderful naive charm about them both in their shape and colouring. Remember this wee zebra from last weeks Monday post?
I think my favourite has to be the wee zebra (first one) with his colourful velvet and crochet stripe combo. Or possibly the lion (last one) with his velvety mane. Oh, it's too tough to choose!
