Brooches and Cardmaking

It's been nearly 9 months since I set up this blog, and it's only now that I've got a chance to try and set it up properly (time flies by in my world.....). There's been lots to do in the crafty section of the house and many projects started, quite a few completed and the remainder hanging around in baskets waiting to be picked up again and finished off!
Since June I've been learning a bit about vegetable patches (we had some great crops last year), I started a bit of card making last September and I love it, and the usual knitting a crochet bits and pieces are ongoing. We've been in our house for 9 years now and it really is in need of a bit of an uplift and what better way that creating a few soft furnishings with some nice yarns. Its all in the plan for the next few months....
They have to wait because, in the meantime though I have been asked to do an interactive demo and our local craft expo on the 3rd March (for a whole hour!) on card making techniques so I'm starting to plan the session. I have also been asked to provide a selection of my home-made brooches for display. I made quite a few of these at Christmas from a variety of media - crochet flowers, tapes, buttons, friendly plastics and beads. Here is a sample of my first one.

So its time to get crafting... watch this space
