These broaches were made by The Missus as part of my birthday present (a few weeks back). I was totally blown away by them. I love hand made pressies…..even something as simple as a cup of tea….It is a gift of time and we all know how precious time is! The cushion I made last Sunday so I can display them.
I’d picked up a fq a while ago thinking I’d make “something” for The Missus “sometime”. Sometime came about last Sunday. I made her a lavender bag stuffed to bursting point with lavender I’d dried from the garden. The scent is divine.
I also made a bag for my soldering iron, but the gremlins seem to have eaten the piccie. When I bought some solder recently, the guy behind the counter asked me in a very condescending manner if I was making jewellery. He looked rather stunned when I told him I was soldering the budgie cage. It is a pity that kind of attitude is still around.
