~A Monthly Make 2011 ~

I signed up to complete a Monthly Make with 'Annie The Felt Fairy'; and as January is creeping on I am finding myself with very little to actually show.

Of the things I have made many of them are unfinished, including three different cushion covers, a little pile of crochet granny squares, some larger 'Crochet-a-long' squares for the Ravelry throw ~ but nothing complete. The bits that I have completed are for gifts for the birthday swap and the Spread the Bloggy Love swap, so I can't show them here just yet.

So after all my excuses, here is my little offering for January 2011, two large flower brooches made with the last of the Rowan pure wool I had left over from the scarf I made at Christmas.

I added a few pearls (lovingly snipped off a rubbish necklace I had) to spice it up a bit, and then made another exactly the same. They are rather big and heavy and will probably only be suitable for a coat, jacket or heavy cardie ~ I think one might go well on my grey wool coat.

I have dusted the sewing machine off and made some fabric bits this last week, I will have to show you them soon.
