Lyn has been cruising around in the warm waters of Queensland and was inspired to make a large rug using a variety of techniques - weaving, knitting, crochet, felting etc. 
 
Her inspiration came from the seashore.

Liz-crochet-rug2
This amazing blanket was crocheted by Liz Woods. 
She explains: The blanket was made as part of the 2013 Janie Crowfoot Crochet Club. Janie is a UK designer, and her 2013 Crochet Club design was inspired by Persian and Moroccan textiles, rugs and architecture using a palette of blues, reds, oranges and terracotta. It was Janie's previous club designs and the 2013 colour palette and design inspiration that convinced me to join the club. The yarn used is Rowan Cotton GlacÚ (sport weight) and the beads, No. 6 Debbie Abrahams Beads. The beads were added as the blanket was crocheted. 

This was my first large crochet project. I worked on it between February and December that year from monthly pattern postings. I learned new lots of new techniques, ways of using the basic stitches and how traditional doily patterns can be transformed with the addition of colour and integrated into a larger project. I loved adding the beautiful beads to the design and the great online support throughout the project to help me with explanations and new techniques.
