birds nest brooch pin, more flowers and skateboards



At the moment I am addicted to crocheting flowers and it has been such a lovely day to just sit in the garden crocheting listening to the bird song. I have got this brooch pin for sale in my Etsy and have made one for my mum and mum in law as its mums day this Sunday in the UK.


Here are some I made in all shades of pink for my friend Linda who is making lots of pink stuff to sell for the breast cancer charity.




Here is one I am wearing at the moment on my purple jacket..just love making them!




We had a lovely day yesterday by the river mersey skateboarding...it was great watching the river and watching the kids and Pete!! skate down the hill....No Fear:)

OOH, I love them!! I was going to sew buttons in the centre of mine but those beads(eggs!) look great. Thanks for sharing about the embellisher, was really interested to know how it works. I keep telling myself I cant afford another hobby, but I have enjoyed the felt making so much!!x

I adore crocheted flowers. I want to learn how to do that some day.

Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog post about my pregnancy and for wishing me a happy birthday on Facebook.

And in case Donna didn't answer your question, which I'm sure she probably did, you are correct that Donna, Shona and I all go to church together. We have a lot of creative souls in our church of all sorts. It really great. Shona even hosts an arts festival on her property once a year and brings in outside judges, live music, food and all.
