Wearable Art

It's been cold and wet here today and it's been one of those day's that don't quite go according to plan!
Firstly, I get a call from our local leisure centre to say are you coming to do ' crafty kids' ?
Maybe I had made a mistake, I have been busy.
They had six children waiting, so I cancel my plans and jump in the car, luckily it's just around the corner, it turns out they had forgotten to book me.
We made giant butterflies and paper puppets on straws, talk about quick thinking!

Then I rush home to drop my children off at the cinema, to see 'Night at the Museum'.
I only just get back home and get a call from my daughter, to say they couldn't get in as it was fully booked.

Oh dear, so it was back in the car to pick them up again.
So I have not managed much sewing today.

I did finish this brooch last night, it looks great on my black coat, it's for the exhibition but now I want to keep it !
I hope your having a good week.x
I ordered some more moo postcards, family and friends had most of the last lot!
So I am listing more on etsy.

Don't you hate it when things don't go according to plan. Brooch looks good though.


What a busy day! Hope you find some "me" time to relax this evening!

I can see why you want to keep your brooch, it does look good on your coat!

What a day you have had and it isn't even Friday 13th. I managed to order some of your wonderful postcards, can't wait to receive them.
I hope you have a lovely relaxing evening with your sewing.

Love the brooch by the way.
