Cashmere Bears (cut but not stitched up)
Lavender Birds (in a nice new spring colour)
Linen Mice (cut out but, again, not stitched together)
Tweed Bunny Purses (yet again, cut out, and partly stitched)
Monster Purses (I can’t keep up with these)
Felt Flower Brooches (mostly buttercups and auriculas)
As you can see, many have been cut but are sitting in their project boxes waiting to be completed. I’m starting with a re-stock of flower brooches. Almost the most time consuming bit of this is assembling the pieces to sew, but I do like seeing them all laid out nicely on a tray, ready for stitching.
It reminded me that I have a tweed bag, complete with buttercup brooch, sitting in a box, ready for a Spring giveaway. I couldn’t work out what was wrong with it when I took it out to photograph today, I knew there was a fault and it was why I’d popped it aside,
but I can now see that the strap is on the wrong side. Doh! otherwise it’s in perfect order and I don’t think it makes any difference really, especially if you’re left handed….although then the zip would pull the wrong way…maybe.
It has cheery ‘Snow White’ lining and is ready to be given away, so do please comment below to be in with a chance and I’ll pick a winner in the 2nd March. I’ll post anywhere, and sadly, can’t reply to comments as it pushes the numbers out. On which note, I am trying to catch up with all my blog reading and replying to comments here, so do please be patient with me. Things are slipping.
And on a complete tangent, I have new boots, just arrived today from the Dune sale and I love them. I might need to invest in some flouncy long Victorian style skirts.
Right, I have to go clean now, I’ve been neglecting my housewife duties and I’m at the point where I’d be too embarrassed to invite anyone through the door, never a good thing.
