Today, In my work space, are these embroidered flower brooches. I am obsessed with creating these at the moment and am definitely going to make them for my Etsy Store. I love the whole process, the choosing of the colours, the cutting of the soft felt into petals, the embroidery thread, the creation of beautiful blue lines on the snow white felt in a simple chain stitch. I love the creative thought processes – stitch lengths, colour changes, width between blanket stitches, the total absorption into one small project.

You heard it here first!
I love that the colours remind me of France, of deep blue oceans and white sands and that the sewing of these can transport me straight there. What do you think of when you see them? Wouldn’t you just want to wear one so you can take a holiday without leaving the house? (although you’d probably want to show them off!)
Meet me for a chat with a cup of tea in the comments, I’ll click the kettle on!
