...featuring two appliqued holly leaves edged with beads and finished with a pretty button berry and ribbon detail. So far they have been well received, having sold one brooch and receiving a custom request for a keyring version :)
So, for Folksy Friday this week I have decided to feature some other festive holly items currently available on Folksy. There are so many beautiful items available but here are a selection of my favourites :) Please click on the photo to be taken directly to the shop...

Well I'm back anyway :) I've been busy sewing and preparing for Christmas which is slowly creeping up on us. I'm going to be having a mainly handmade Christmas this year and hope to be doing lots of gift shopping at Folksy. I will soon be putting together a few gift guides, ideas for beautiful decorations and fabulous Christmas cards all featuring items available at Folksy! I have a few decorations listed in my Folksy shop, so will leave you for now with a little look at some of them :)

Last night I came across a lovely selection of fabric swatches. I have previously worked in both the woollen and worsted textile industries here in Yorkshire and along the way have acquired a few of these swatches, left over from mood boards that I used to produce. They are all in fabulous qualities, some 100% wool tweeds, superfine worsteds and some lovely wool silk mixtures....a bit different from the pretty florals I usually use but just what I was looking for, for inspiration for some new Autumn brooches!
This week I've also been busy checking out the colours for the coming season. I'm now stocked up on felt in new deepers shades and have been buying in new buttons, ribbons and embroidery threads....
....can't wait to get started on some new designs now!

I love deep plummy purples for Autumn/Winter so for my Folksy Friday I have chosen to feature some lovely purpley accessories which would be fab for the oncoming season. Please click on the picture to be taken directly to the shop.

I don't want my Folksy shop to come to a standstill altogether though, so I will try to fit in making and listing when I can .... just when I'm raring to go with some new ideas too, typical!!
Anyway, here's today's listing a new little bird brooch in a lovely shade of Wedgwood blue, hope you like!
