Colour me lucky


Look at this beautiful brooch, dumfed and beaded by Twiglet. I won it, simply by leaving a comment. How easy for me. I'm genetically drawn to these colours and so this brooch is perfect for me. I'm also genteically drawn to the sort of crafts that I don't do from lack of any skill, and the collation of silks, fibres, beads and metallic threads into a wearable piece of art is beyond me. I love it. Thank you Twiglet.

Lovely brooch, wonderful post. Like you, I have no ability to hand sew, so this is simply awesome. Good for you. You genuinely deserve it!

That is beautiful - gorgeous colours and textures. Yay Twiglet for creating and you for winning.

Amy said...

I like that and I want it. I never win stuff so Twiglet ought to have given it to me. Except that you are considerate enough to post a picture of it. I would have just opened it, put it on, and told people that I made it myself. So I guess you deserve it. Dammit.

Elizabeth said...

Aren't you lucky - it's lovely. Like you I admire this but would not attempt to make it myself :( Gorgeous colours and a nice mix of fibres, fabrics and ribbon. Elizabeth x
