Just stopping in for a quick hello today! I keep meaning to post pictures of the brooches I made my mother-in-law for Mother's Day and I somehow always manage to forget.....
so here they are (only a month-and-a-half late)
My mother-in-law is a big fan of pink so I wanted to make some kind of pink pin for her and this is what I ended up with.
It sounds odd but when I start making something I usually don't have a plan for how I intend for it to look when I'm done.
I just play around and put things together as I go and hope it evolves into something pretty when I'm done.
I actually loved the pink pin so much when I was done with it that I was quite tempted to keep it for myself.
I also made my Mother-in-law this more casual brooch with denim from a pair of my husband's (her son's) old jeans and decorated it up a bit with some lace around the edge.
Felicity is going to wake up any minute and I have a few hundred things I need to get done before she comes running in here bright eyes and bushy tailed ready to get the day going, so I have to go get to work.
I wish I had her ability to jump out of bed smiling, full of energy, eager to greet the day!
