An Early Morning

I have never won anything so I was very excited when I found out I had won these lovely craft items and hand made textile tags, and note book from
A fellow stitcher always knows how exciting it is to receive a parcel like this!
Thank you so much.

Today at 6.00am I crawled out of bed to take our dog Bertie for a walk through Abbey Fields.
It was a sunny morning and I had to take some pictures to share with you.
This time of year is so beautiful, new green fresh leaves, the smell of newly mown grass and the warmth of the early morning sun.
I also have been stitching these new colourful brooches with some vivid silk threads, how I love the colours!
I must also say another thank you to for a blog award.
We have school half term holidays next week, yipee!
I think the dog may have to get used to sleeping in!



A beautiful walk, I was admiring your pictures on flickr. Beautiful brooches and lucky you winning that lovely selection of goodies. You are most deserving M. Have a lovely weekend, Carolyn x

I recently made some felted ATCs on felt, and someone suggested they would make nice broaches. May I ask what you back yours with?
And are they on felt or wool or some other fabric that is sturdier than craft felt? Thank you and I hope you don't mind sharing your expertise. All your work is so lovely.
