New Brooches

by greenrabbitdesigns

You will have seen all of these corsages at one stage or other over the past couple of weeks. Today however I’ve managed to put the finishing touches to all of them and hopefully I’ll get them into my shop over the weekend.

I joined all the little crocheted primula together and added a leaf that I sewed using needlecord. I made another one using a linen mix yarn and filled the centre with little brassy beads.

Teal cotton yarn was used for this brooch with a lovely teal bead for the centre and the final one is made using grey wool/alpaca mix yarn trimmed with pink merino wool with sparkly beads at the centre.

I took my photos in the greenhouse today as the light was good and it cuts out any sudden breezes but there is always at least one cat or other who wants to get in on the act. I was ably assisted today by photographic assistant extraordinaire, Charlie! 🙂

Well the weather has been lovely again today and it looks like tomorrow is to be the same.
I think spring is in the air!!!

Have a lovely weekend whatever you get up to and whatever the weather and I’ll ‘see’ you all next week! 🙂

Beautiful as ever Vivienne, and I love the leaf. Not such a great day today .. yesterday was a corker but at least it’s dry and mild. I really hope that’s an end to the cold weather!
Happy weekend.

I love the look on Charlie’s face. I reckon he’s thinking stop waving that camera about and let me play with the wool!

Beautiful Vivienne, I especially love the linen corsage filled with brass beads………such patience to sew all those tiny beads into the centre.

Enjoy your weekend, lily x

What can I say? I like every single picture (the third one, the close up is my favorite), your work is lovely and your cat is adorable!

All of your creations are so pretty. Making the leaf from needlecord fabric was an inspired idea.
Charlie looks very cute sitting there!

Lovely, lovely new brooches, Vivienne, but that assistant of your is just perfect!! I know what you’re going to say but I still try: Would he be able to assist me sometime? I would award him dearly 🙂

Happy weekend!

I love your brooches, the little crochet flowers look lovely in a little cluster and the leaf is a good idea to finish it off. How hopeful the kitty is looking for some wool to play with!
Hope you are having a happy sunny weekend.

The brooches are so pretty Vivienne with their beaded centres. A lovely touch! Charlie is a lovely boy. Cats always find the best places to go don’t they? x

Hi Vivienne, how lovely, I think the primulas are my favourite just because I love those colours together and the leaf sets them off beautifully.
Cats are so nosey aren’t they! Have a nice week, looks like a mild one, yippee! x
