birds coming along...


I have been making some little brooches lately -the pink robin was inspired by my recently mentioned sightings of robins (and many other birds) while camping at Binna Burra.
I have always had a soft spot for kingfishers too and occasionally see them in the wetlands-such pretty colours...


Frustratingly, I lost one of the Kingfisher brooches when it just needed a backing to finish it, I felt so cranky about it I couldn't even look at the rest tonight!
So I made a bag instead of finishing anymore...
Thank goodness, I love how the bag turned out, sometimes crafting can really bring me down when I can't resolve something or when something takes ages to make and looks nothing like I envisioned it to...but this one is so good, I can't wait to give it to my friend (even though I wish I could keep it!) I just have to fix up the handle and it'll be done. Pics soon,

I had a sewing disaster with a back for a quilt and haven't touched it since. Still makes me wild. Love the birds though and i am sure the other one will turn up soon.

Wow! I really love your brooch - it's so beautiful! We were at O'Reillys on the holidays - wasn't it just gorgeous up there? Maybe we passed each other on some tracks ;) Have a great week. Kx

I know!!! It can be very frustrating when the image in ones head doesn't match what one has created... it can bring me down sometimes too... but then I just try to think of the positives of what I have made and what I have learnt from it all.. nothing is every perfect, though my head has other ideas!! I love little king fishers.. they are just so beautiful :)

Sometimes the best things we make are happy accidents :-) Love the birds!
