Flower Power

We have been away for the Bank Holiday weekend. We went to see Laura and Toby in Southampton. It was lovely to see them they are so happy together.
I have photos and will share later.

I wanted to show you my latest organza flowers.

I just love to make these flowers and I love to wear brooches so I decided to combine the two.
Here are the results.
These are big showy brooches, almost 4 inches across.

They have the same heavily beaded centres as the flowers on my quilts and of course the little dragonfly but, now I can wear my art!

I'm really thrilled with them. I wore one on our little walk around Ilfracombe yesterday and had some lovely comments about it.
Big head now ;0)

You can see other pics of them on Flickr and my Etsy Shop.

What a great idea I love them. You'll be starting a new trend then.

Alis they are gorgeous. They look as if they are about 2" across maybe? I was trying to work it out by the size of the beads in the middle. The little dragonfly is just perfect. Val

Ooops! I've just re-read your splurge and these are 4" across. I'm just impatient to leave a comment before I have read it properly. Sorreeeeeeeee! Val
