Bridgit's Bell Creativity ringing.....
Oh the heart brooch is so pretty! Your californian friend must have been delighted. For some reason my laptop isn't letting me see the brooch you were sent though. I participated in the brooch swap too but haven't posted pictures on my blog yet. I'd better get onto it!
Oh jeez!! There is nothing wrong with your lap top. i forgot to include it. I will remedy that now. Thanks for the compliment.
Both brooches are beautiful. I like the colour combination on the one you made and the detail.
Thanks! I did have fun playing with colors. I cut out a lot of heart shapes in varying sizes and then mixed and matched.The strawberry swap you were in looked great!
Thanks Louise. I had fun with the color combining. Love the Christmas items you have been working on, like the hearts with the fabric messages.
Both brooches are lovely. Funny that you both did hearts. And me (and hubby) have both discovered that we have both been spelling brooch wrong all our lives. (We thought it was broach, but have looked it up and we are wrong.) Educational.
Yes, it is interesting that we both did hearts from the opposite coasts.Brooch is one of those words that proves phonetics wrong.
Both are lovely, sweet pieces. The one with the beading looks like it took a lot of time and talent. :)
Thanks very much. I enjoyed your plantation photo-the effects you applied were great.
I think that you can't have to many brooches! That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it haha. The two brooches are very pretty.
Thanks. The reason you can't have too many brooches is that they go through the wash! Thanks for visiting.
I love both brooches - both very tactile. I like the beaded blanket stitch in particular. Lovely touch.
Your right, they are tactile. The beaded blanket stitch looks great and is not hard at all! Thanks for visiting.
Just beautiful! I love the gorgeous colors; makes me want to try dying with plants again. The beads are the perfect touch, too!
Thanks, the plant dyed fabric and felt are really special. I love you snowflakes!
Both items are really lovely
Thanks so much, someone else commented she puts brooches on her handbags!
I really like the beads you have added and the different stitches. You would not be able to buy anything like this. Love it.
If I put some on Etsy you would!
The brooches are lovely, I really like the beading you put around the outer heart
:D. There are several tutorials on Pinterest on this stitch.
these are both really pretty. What a lovely idea to swap.
Yeas, swaps are really fun. I want to make a pair of the wristies like you did.
Beautiful brooches, I love the muted colours, very elegant.
Ah, I was going for elegant. Thanks.
This is beautiful. I love brooches for my handbag :)
Good idea on your bags!
Everything you do is so beautiful!!!!
Do you really think so, daughter?
well of course!
