Felt leaves again.
These felt Oak Leaf brooches have proved popular and in between the Festive excitements I've been making a new batch of them. Available in my webshop and my folksy shop.
The weather has been so gloomy, working with colourful felts and threads and pretty beads has been a real tonic. I find doing blanket and chain stitch very relaxing. In the evenings I have been using a hand quilted quilt over my knees to keep cosy and the urge to start hand quilting again is very strong; I think that this afternoon, now the Christmas cards are all made and posted, I can justify the pleasure of getting some fabrics out, stroking them a bit and doing some planning before the light has completely gone. I have some squares already made that are crying out for a quilt.
