My little Yorkshire friend is 90 on Friday so I have trimmed up one of my machine embroidered cards appropriately. Sadly, she has been unable to really appreciate my handiwork for a long time now, but that doesn't stop me sending all sorts of cards to her. When I visit her, a couple of them are usually on the table beside her - often being used as a drink mat!! I don't care - if she just has a moment's pleasure when they are given to her then I am happy.
The lovely red cap is one of three that I am making for another special lady. They look really snazzy and certainly make this lovely lady feel good!
In the tin box are a few of the brooches that I made this week. Wipso and I made the front ones by melting the edges of man-made fabrics over a candle. It curls the shapes and stops the edges from fraying. We layered up the pieces and then added beads to the centres.
The brooches on the lid are made with a recycled mohair scarf, silk and beads. I think they will go to the craft fair mentioned below!
Sorry the room is a mess but I like to work and then have a big tidy up at the end.
I have visitors this weekend so I will have to have a big clean up in here when I have finished. Or maybe I get my little sock buddies to do it!!
See you all later once I have linked to you all on Julia's blog.
