I love brooches!

I absolutely love making little fabric brooches, in fact at the moment I think the majority of items in my Folksy shop are brooches! I never really have a plan of what I am going to make, I just like to sit with a pile of fabric, ribbons and buttons and make it up as I go along.... maybe it's best not to admit this, but it works for me most of the time anyway!! For this reason most brooches I make are one offs, although I can easily repeat an item that I have previously made if requested.

In previous months my little birds and owls have been selling well. May has been a quiet month but I'm cracking on with some lovely summery accessories. To start with, today I've listed this lovely heart brooch in one of my favourite Liberty fabrics called Menasse, I love this bright and cheerful colourway....perfect for the summer!

At last......

...... I've got around to creating a blog. It was actually my New Years resolution to set one up, so as it's nearly June I thought it was about time! So here I am finding my feet, playing around with settings and looking forward to seeing how it all develops! Here are a couple of little birds currently available in my Folksy shop ..... just testing out how to add photos, but hope you like them anyway....
