new brooches, wear a little gentlework






I've been enjoying stitching these little brooches lately. When I'm making, I never throw any scrap of fabric or lace away, however small and I have boxes and tins of little bits and pieces all around my workroom. Is that something you do too? It's lovely to re-use these bits and bobs, adding a few precious buttons and highlighting with tiny beads, to turn them into something new. I like to add a few words, (typed on my vintage green typewriter!) for comfort or inspiration....

Your brooches are so pretty...and so creative! I love every one of them. Sure wish I lived close enough to stop by one of the fairs you do!!
How do you add the little words? Do you type on fabric or little bits of paper?
