My First Etsy Treasury!

Today I thought I would create an Etsy Treasury as I have never done one before but my embroidery has been included in many! I am a member of the Etsty NeedleArts Team so I thought I would include the fabulous members in my treasury. I love simple black outline embroideries so thought this would be a great theme for my first treasury. Check it out here: Traditional Craft, Modern Twist I hope you enjoy the many fantastic embroiderers featured!

New Brooch Designs

I had a busy weekend and a lovely Mother's Day, the kids and Andrew really pampered me and bought me some lovely gifts including this gorgeous handmade sewing box from Enchanted Wood in Todmorden! I am transferring all my sewing paraphernalia from my old metal box to my new one!

I have been working on some new brooch designs and the following are now available in my Etsy Shop. I do love making them as they are mostly inspired by my love of the sea side! Oooooooooh I can't wait to go on holiday in June I can smell that sea air already!
