Tag, you're it!

Hello! Feels like a long time since I've blogged-sorry. Things have been quite exciting 'round here as my brooches and other treasures are now in another shop. Nila, my sister-in-law very kindly took some bits back with her form her hols. She had told me about a very cool shop called Mallory and Syds in Sheffield and they have agreed to put some bits out on commission. (I'm very excited!) I also spent a good long time mooching in Tamarisk who also sells my stuff. Emma is lovely and very happy to see what I've been up to. I can't tell you how nice it is after three pretty depressing farmers markets to find a home for my creations where they are loved!
This is my latest brooch design, three blooms in wool, lightly felted on the embellisher, mounted on a padded felt brooch with vintage buttons. I like this and might do some more in a posh wool on a green embellished felt brooch, what do you think.....a go-er?
The main reason for this post is that I have been tagged by the lovely and now rightfully celebrated Iris and Lilly. so here goes with a hefty dose of self indulgence as I tell you 11 things all about ME!!!!!
Clothes shop; I'd love to be all glam but since I've had the kids it's two T-shirts in the trolley!
Furniture shop; Our local independent, so friendly and delivers straight away.
Sweet; Wispa at the moment-I just can't resist.
City; York, Bath, Canterbury, you get the picture, old, smallish.
Drink; Beeeeeeeeeer, although posh bottled Cider is surprisingly a bit nicer than Woodpecker!
Music; Not techno pop cheese or opera or country but otherwise I'm e-a-s-y.
T.V series; Agatha Christie- oh how soothing you are!
Film; Like books there's not much I'd sit through twice.
Workout; walking. I do force myself to the gym but not as often as I 'should'.
Pastries; Chelsea or Belgian, I do like a nice bun
Coffee; oooooo no thanks,tea for me, and please don't stir it with a coffee-ish spoon.
Thanks Sharon, and I'm taging Cooplet, because she's just started Uni and might have som new discoveries to share!
I am getting very excited about Sundays trip to the Knitting and Stitching show, I don't know if any one else out their in blogland is planning a visit, but if you fancy meeting for a tea......

Lovely... as usual with your stuff. Good to know you have outlets for your work too. Much better than the farmer's market.

Jackie said...

Well done with the outlets..there's nothing more depressing than a poor craft show or farmers market.(Well not much anyway)

Lovely brooches. I went to Alexandra palace today. I was a little disappointed, but I think I always hope for that feeling I got the first time I ever went, and I had never been anywhere like it, so exciting. Have a great time and let us see what you buy. I bought books. And fabric:)
