busy busy busy

I'm busy working on a few things at the moment.

This brightly coloured fabric collage/embroidery:I have a bird fixation at the moment.

More brooches - I've now used part of one of my fulled (fancy word for felting knitted wool) jumpers on the latest brooch I've made (sorry no pics yet, not enough natural light). This might be my new favourite material to work with, so soft, thick, easy to stitch, and it looks really good too.

Also been working on my secret project/idea which I will reveal next week.

Harumph ... that 'secret project' smacks of teasing. Can't wait to see it, whatever it is.


PS Oh, earlier this evening I posted about the lovely brooch your sister made me.

I love your green bird!! And it looks so great on that hot pink background. Birds are really popular this year. I just bought my daughter a quilt for her guest room from Pottery Barn and it has appliqued birds on it.

I can't wait to see what you're making with the felted wool. Betz White got me started on felting... but I've been side-tracked lately with other things on my list.

So... you get to motivate me this time.

I love the way you put those fabrics together - they look fab.

Thanks SO MUCH for my brilliant package - I'm well chuffed! You really are too kind.

And please hurry up and get those gorgeous brooches into your shop ....

Hi, today is a good day as I found you're lovely blog!

I'm drooling over you're booches and the liilte monsters are soooooooooo cute.

As for a fabric supplier, Whaleys have an interesting range of undyed stuff. They're will send five free samples if you don't want to buy the sample catalogue.
No I don't work for them, I just think they're worth knowing about.

I love you're little collage too, the colours are amazing!

I love the birdy fabric collage thing!!!

Those colours are gorgeous - so zingy, and love the bird but then I've got a thing about birds too. Something about the shape!
Can't wait to see what the surprise is going to be!
