Busy sewing- in between other, far less interesting, tasks. Two different styles of leaf brooch: one based on an oak leaf and inspired by the raised decoration on a 16th century German salt-glazed pot,
the other inspired by an eighteenth century fabric design
and an almost circular brooch suggested by a metal buckle from the Balkans in a display at the British Museum
...never be without a sketch book, you don't know when you might see something that triggers an idea....
