Something New


These two items (Flora Pendant and Thalia Brooch) have just been added to my Etsy store...a little bit of colour to welcome the changing of the seasons - more to follow.

I'm developing a bit of a 'thing' for stitching these floral motifs...I'm enjoying working with the silks, and the colours are lifting my mood a little. It's been great to see the sun shining today, and the little drifts of colour in the garden from crocus and snowdrops. Sweet. I can't believe I've just written that....me, someone completely addictd to the depths of winter! Suddenly, I've become aware that it is SO much nicer to be able to work in proper daylight. Clarity is returning with the onset of Spring.

Now, before a certain person mentions it...yes, it IS probably my age - the decline in my eyesight and whatnot. I know, I know...

Beautiful colours in the brooch and pendant. I have the same trouble with the light... in my case it definitely is age and eyesight related!

Stunning, as usual. I'm especially fond of Flora. Do you have a certain place you acquire your silk? Just curious if its online or anything.
