***** hApPy NeW yEaR *****

so i've gone felt brooch cRaZy!
they take me ages to make so i don't know if i'll be trying to sell them or not
these first two were quite quick but the later styles take quite a lot of sewing
i'm finding them quite therapeutic to make though!

christmas present for my aunty

christmas present for my artist uncle

i'm still loving the toadstools!

close up!

i found a great website called cut out and keep
where people post tutorials and show off their new projects - it's well worth a look - so far i have made this cute tape measure brooch and helped my daughter make the no sew tu-tu for her new years costume.
i also added a tutorial for these new robot brooches
my daughter was feeling left out so requested a robot - which was great as i wanted to make one anyhow!

"push my buttons!"


so i realised i've been blogging for over a year already!

i've really enjoyed it and have made so many new friends since i started reading blogs and joining forums and doing crafty swaps. Thank-you to everyone who follows my blog and makes time to comment on my posts and my photo's on Flickr - i love to read what you think about my stuff!

i had some bad computer problems at the end of last year and now it's all sorted out and working so much better - luckily nothing was lost BUT i can't get into my flickr account which is driving me nuts especially as i have christmas money to go "pro" - hoping to get this resolved very soon as i really want to make a compilation picture of all the things i made this year.

ps. i told my Mum about the bauble tragedy and i'm still alive to tell the tale
