My creative space

In my creative space at the moment..... a brooch production line.

I have brooches in various stages of production strewn everywhere around the house. Wherever I sit, there's a pile to be stitched. I even have a blister on my thumb from the needle!

I'm also experimenting with flywire - I don't know if this is heading anywhere just yet, I'll just have to wait and see.

In other strange news, I sent a small parcel of brooches to Handmade Heaven on Monday afternoon, and of course, I put my return address on the bottom of the box. Tuesday was a public holiday in Melbourne. On Wednesday, I opened up my mailbox to find that Australia Post had mailed my own parcel back to me. What the????

More creativity abounds over here....

Ooh, look at all those beautiful brooches waiting to come to life! For some reason I have an urge to eat them, must be because they look delicious! Can't wait to see what becomes of that flywire.

I love the butterfly that flew over to M.E.

I must visited you at one of your Melbourne markets.

Michelle said...

The brooches look great and the flywire is intriguing. Thank you for my awesome PIF that arrived last week (and sorry for being to slow to say thankyou). The brooch is lovely and the chocolate was very well timed.

Beky said...

That is such a beautiful photo of your brooches. Idea for you, take photos of the brooches together and produce cards, gift tags or screen print onto tote bags. :-) :-)

I like the flywire idea - could be a great sculpting medium for some 3d brooches?

Cindy said...

Look at you go - you are a brooch making machine! Remember that it is still meant to be fun

Brenda said...

Your brooches are gorgeous!

Michelle said...

Loev the idea of flywire! A friend makes handbags out of gutter guard!

Liesl (Hoppo Bumpo) said...

Don't the brooches look gorgeous. I love the colours. You might need to get yourself one of those leather thumb thingummies for doing the stitching??

I am looking forward to seeing what turns up from your flywire experiment. That's most intriguing. Perhaps I could commission you to come and embellish a rather large hole made in our flywire door made by a cat and two small boys?

Such a resplendent (thank-you Roget's Thesaurus) collection of fabric flowers. I can't imagine a prettier production line.

Megan.K. said...

Love the brooche's colours.
Aust Post is a mystery to me too...
