A little bit of creating

It's turned out to be a pretty awful week this week with one thing and another so to calm myself i did a little creating. I thought i'd have a go at making a brooch, i love fabrics and have a fairly decent collection now, but am rubbish at sewing. This was the result, it's a 6cm x 6cm brooch, very nice, but a little too big. I thought it would make a nice bag charm too.I made this one slightly smaller: 4cm x 4cm, which is a better size for a brooch (sorry for the awful photo).
Then i thought i'd have a go at some more, these are not quite finished yet (again sorry for the awful photo).

The hearts i made over the Christmas holidays.

New Window Display

Here's another look at my window display. I altered it over the two downstairs windows and moved most of the display to the kitchen window, mainly because the window kept getting lots of condensation on it from the fire in the room and the snow outside.

This is so everyone knows it's me:
It looks so nice, i've had lots of nice comments from people passing by and so many people have stopped to look.

I decided to make a display of my art work in the shop window...just to give a taste.... (I've since done another one in the kitchen window).
