*photos, and some crafting...*

fabric-brooches-01.02.07


So, I decided I was going to have a bit of a play/experiment today, and made these fabric brooches, which I'm actually quite pleased with. I've got five more ready to make up, but I've run out of brooch pins, so I'm just going to have to wait to finish them. Any constructive criticism would be very gratefully received!

In other news (!!), A shares a birthday at the end of Feb with her classmate, B - so yesterday, I photographed the two of them for the invitations for their joint party - what a hoot!! The theme of their party is 'princesses and pirates', hence the headgear, and they were laughing so much I just kept on snapping. They then proceeded to laugh even more on reviewing the photos I'd taken. I let them choose their favourite for the invitation, and this was the one they chose:

I then spent a not inconsiderable amount of time last night making their invitations, and, big relief, they've all gone out today. Just got to worry about small things like party bags and game prizes now...

Whilst A was at a party on Saturday, F went for a walk with her daddy and the dog, and E managed to get some very moody photographs - the sky was a superb palette of greys and blues, although the greys are dominant in this photo:

Love the contrast with the earthy tones of the field.
