I make no apologies for my entry today. I am officially in love with crocheting and have been honing my skills using the Crochet Flowers and Leaves tutorial from Attic 24. I'm calling these my Opal Fruit Brooches for obvious reasons (or Starburst brooches to those of you that aren't as ancient as myself).
Unfortunately the holes on the brooch pins were too small for my bodkin needle to fit through so that's one little job left to do.
I did think about combining all three to make a corsage but the flowers were a little too large for my small frame and I would have looked like I had a bush growing out of my shoulder, so I kept them as three separate brooches which can be combined as and when the occasion dictates.

Thank you for coming to visit today. I love getting my daily blog fix and reading your lovely comments but before I go I must share this interesting fact with you.
My lovely friend H. is a total techie and has downloaded an app to her phone which allows her to listen to the latest posts of all the blogs she has subscribed to for work purposes. She is also a follower of this blog and was relating a story to me of driving to work one day listening to mundane blog listings from the world of technology when up piped my blog post going on about how it was my son's birthday, chocolate cake, blah, blah, blah. She said it really made her smile to have a little bit of me suddenly there with her in the car. So if you're listening H. I'm dedicating this post to you.
So you see ladies you just never know who is tuning in to your blog and more importantly how they are doing it.
Right that's definitely it now, I'm off to see what the Handmade Monday girls have got to offer me this week.
