These may look like brooches but they are not.

I have spent lots of time in my workroom this week but couldn't settle on anything.I made the whatever they are in between wishing I could come up with an idea for something interesting to begin
working on.I kept starting things then not liking them ,pausing for endless cups of coffee and flicking through books.Nothing helped. So by today I had 5 of the whatever they are. I think I will cover a football size ball with them and then hang it as a decoration!!! I think I will need about 20 to cover the ball.

     It will  soon be time for the sewing group to start again and I have one plan ready.I was amazingly lucky last sunday and found at a flea market about 5 metres of red raw silk material,3 of cream and 1 metre blue shot through with green.I am going to give everyone some of the red and ask them to  make a doll about 15 inches tall to add to the Christmas decorations for the village hall.They will be able to do it at home and have plenty of time. For the meetings they have asked for help to make fabric journals so I should start to make some preparations for them.      
PP S all the whatevers are the same size just the red one looks huge in the photo.                                                      


  1. I love your blog and your creations! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Your work is beautiful. I saw in the post above that you recently lost a friend and I want to extend my condolences. To lose someone so suddenly can seem unreal and take a while to really grasp. You are in my prayers. I think your idea to dress up dark colors with a bit of cheery bling is a good idea ;-)

  3. these would look good bunched together with buttons in the middle on a cushion
