Brooches

While we were on our cruise I made these brooches.
About ten years ago I used to make these and sell them and they were very popular.
After this years Embroiderers Guild exhibition I decided that I would make some more and be ready with a supply for next years exhibition.
They are made using the silk fabric and ribbons that I dyed earlier this year and I am not sure if you can see it but there is also a gold metalic thread in between the stems to add a bit of bling.




I will make some more over the Christmas New Year break--well I will have to because some of my friends want to by them for Christmas gifts.

They look lovely, no wonder they are in demand. I would think the cleaning fairy would be in demand too!

Just beautiful, Doreen.

Gorgeous buttons, they will vanish as fast as you make them. I wish I had a cleaning fairy - my cupboards are chaotic! Cheers, Robin

These are beautiful Doreen.
I recognize some of the ribbon you've used too - do I get points for being so observant???

Our Guild has closed for the year but next year I'll be right into it!
