pretty flower brooch

I read on littlegems-world a few weeks ago about a brooch she had bought on eBay. I was intrigued so purchased one myself earlier this month. Here it is today on my Per Una Spring cardi from last year, well it feels like Spring to me but it also looks great on my coat, handbag probably great on anything. I liked it so much I am bidding on another one and she has so many to choose from! It's not a great photo as it was taken on my mobile phone!

I'm back!

After a week in bed with the dreaded flu (yes real flu) I am almost back to my normal self. I just have to shake off a sinus infection and finish off a course of antibiotics! So to cheer me up my friend Lisa took me out to a local craft fair this morning then to The Barge for a pot of tea and home made cakes, it was just what I needed and even the rain didn't spoil it. Thank you Lisa + Caroline :)

Last night I decided to start a new project, this time for myself. My sister bought me a Cath Kidston book last year for my birthday and I keep looking at it but haven't actually managed to make anything. I'm really into her stuff now and love the fabric. Now I have a patchwork bag in the making! It's going to take me ages, I hope to have it finished by my birthday in May! I think it's way too nice to be just for knitting stuff.

My six chillies are starting to get their second set of leaves, must start something else off next week.


a bag in the making!
