These are my, now finished, latest batch of brooches. They are all made from voile and all have a matching / contrasting button or two in the middle.I really love these and just know they would be really perfect on a summer outfit. If you see one you like or would like one in different colours I would be happy to make / design a special one for you. I shall be uploading them into the shop soon but til then feel free to leave me a comment here if you are interested in buying one. They are £4.50 each plus postage.
Now the bad / sad news......
The triffid is under attack.....If you enlarge these two pics you will see lots of very hungry caterpillars. They are the caterpillars of the white cabbage butterfly and obviously find my triffid very tasty. I did try to pick them off when tiny but over night they seem to have munched their way through most of the leaves on this, over 6 foot, plant! Alas I think we have no option but to dispose of the whole plant before the hungry little critters take over the whole garden.
Finally I would just like to say thanks to Jo and Suz for dropping in for coffee this morning. It was really lovely to see you both.
