I think it's about time I apologised for the hit-and-miss blogging around here over the last 3 or 4 months. I've been...hmmm...not under the weather exactly but not really myself since the beginning of the year.
I've been to the doctors more times in the last few weeks than I have in the last 6 years and after some tests and scans hopefully things will get better over the next few months, don't worry it's nothing serious but I just feel my 'sparkle' has been 'dulled' and you've not been getting the best of me of late and I hate not giving my best!
Anyway chin up Fi!
What do you think to these little embroideries then?
They're little embellished felt brooches.
They're about 2 inches across,
made from my wet felt and then hand embroidered with threads and ribbons.
Maybe I should try a different shape...
Staying on the subject of brooches, I've also made a few larger ones.
These are quite delicate,
The fabric has a lovely iridescent quality and catches the light beautifully.
And just because I thought this was amazing,(yes I've lead a very sheltered life).
Here are two of my aprons that I brought in from the washing line. Just look what the wind has done to the ties! You've got to agree, that's some spectacular knotting and braiding! I wonder what the wind would make if I hung out an unravelled ball of yarn....
Till next time
love from a very droopy Fi x
