new handmade stock
a few new items have made it from my sketch book, onto my sewing machine and have finally been photographed.
only a few - but a few is better than none - right?
after happily making square and rectangle brooches with hand embroidery all of last year, i thought i would go circular..... and i think i like it!
there are clearly so many options for this brooch - i shall have a selection of six standard "loves", and will offer any willing buyer the option to suggest there own.......
who knows what folk will suggest?
after my weekend of shoveling pony poo and that mountain of stone my own brooch will say love sleep.....
sleep is pretty much what the hounds have been enjoying all weekend, whilst we have been outside in the rain going up and down the drive with wheelbarrow after wheelbarrow ....
today i have churned out lots of washing as the weather is rather warm and sunny, i have also started to dig over the veggie beds, entertained all the dogs, let the ponies out, checked the sheep, eaten lots of maltesers and packed a few orders.
and whilst i have been a busy bee it has made my heart sing to hear the hammering and chiselling from the sitting room - the remaining glass for the front of the house has arrived and the two small pieces are going in today.
hopefully i will pop some pictures on over at Sea House in the morning.
