Brooch Swap

I've been taking part in a lovely little swap organised by Susie at Flowerpress
I posted off this kanzashi brooch (with a few extra goodies) at the weekend to my swap partner who is in Australia, I hope she likes it.
Today I received this lovely butterfly brooch from Cath at Chunkychooky.  I photographed it in the garden as I thought it looked so incredibly realistic.
Thanks Cath, it's lovely and so right to wear at this time of year in the northern hemisphere.
Susie has set up a Flickr group for us all to post photos of our brooches so pop over there to see what else was made, there's an amazing selection of techniques and so much talent on show.  Thanks Susie, it was great fun.....what's next?
PS Please don't forget to vote for the Quilters' Guild "Unfolding the Quilts" project, I've added a button on the right that takes you straight to the voting site and lots more information - overseas votes count too :)


  1. I recently learnt how to do the kanzashi brooch at the Australasian Quilting Convention in Melbourne Australia. It was great fun...no all I nee is some more stiff fabric to make others!

  2. Hi Lis, thank you so much for my gorgeous brooch!!! I am thrilled with it and i adore the colours you used. I have blogged about it today, dandelion.beck.blogspot.com, come and have a look!
