Buttercups & Daisies...

Here are the latest felt doo-dads. There is a Michaelmas Daisy necklace, with five flowers and some leaves this time. The flowers are slightly larger than the previous wild daisies, well, because they are in real life too! The stems and leaves are in a rather nice blue-green felt that I found, very understated. All painstakingly embroidered too. £20 + P&P

In the centre is a little buttercup brooch, with a flower, a bud and a leaf. Small and cute! £5 + P&P

I'm currently working on a bright orange marigold - would have finished it last night if not for passing out in front of the tv and waking at 11.30 with my needle still in my hand! I also have to frame 5 paintings this week ready for a local exhibition at the weekend - more on that later. I loathe framing, but it's a darn sight cheaper than sending them off to be done at a shop - five would be beyond my means at the moment! So I've taught myself how to cut a proper mount and how not to drop kick the lot across the room when I've taken an hour to frame and seal a painting only to discover a dog hair smack bang in the middle under the glass......

They are both so pretty, but the buttercup is my favourite. I love buttercups, they're just so golden and sunny.
