Fabric brooches ... free machine embroidered.

These have been selling well, as many buyers have mentioned that their purchase will be a gift.

I have to start making in earnest for Christmas Fair at Cowslip, 
 Newhouse Farm,  St.Stephens Launceston,  Cornwall PL15 8JX 
18th - 19th November.    I am delivering a workshop there too - 20th Nov.  
It's going to be lovely.
I have much to do :)

 A collection of work available in my Etsy shop.
The above two pieces sold this morning, but I wanted to include them here as a record of my work.
Free machine embroidered girls and birds applied to 1906 paper.   
Below, a lovely old envelope, with 'answered' written on it from 1946.
Layers of lace and snippets of silk ribbon are applied and embroidered to form a garden scene.
 A simpler design for this lovely 1907 envelope below.   A drawn and painted Pidge in amongst the flowers.
 I like the simplicity of this brooch.   Sometimes it's hard to know when to stop.
 Finally, a group of small Brooches which include a Pug brooch!    I know, random, but that's how my mind works.
