After a bit of melt-down at the weekend due to too many half finished projects, too much craft-related mess, and general concern about Christmas plans, I managed to get my head together to do a major tidy up and get some project finished. So here they are.
Indigo dyed, shibori-tied velvet, with silk hand-pulled flowers and hand-rolled organdie leaves, so an online swap.
10 x 10 journal for the Contemporary Quilt Group challenge. disperse-dyed macho overlaid on viscose dyed with Procion MX. Button from the Karen Ruane course, painted with dye and then attached ( haven't quite got the hang of photo editing on the new computer yet).
Hand-rolled organdie leaves, attached to one of the brooches / buttons from the Karen Ruane course. One of the participants on the Morley course is a milliner, and showed us how to make these leaves. i like the idea of having a set of these to add or remove from the brooch as you wish.
Close up of the leaves.
As this is my 200th post, I am going to have a giveaway of one of these that are all now brooches. I can also include some white or green leaves if you wish, but I'll need to get on and make some.
Leave a comment, with which one you would like and why, and I will do a draw next Monday to see who gets one.
