I am also really pleased to have won Lupins giveaway on her blog Bugs and Fishes. I really like Laura's work and although there are other makers also using felt and beads there is something particularly nice about her designs and again the quirky nature of things such as her moustaches and masks. I do seem drawn to the oriental and have liked this cherry blossom design since I first saw it. I asked Laura to post my prize to my parents house as I wanted this brooch to go to my Mum, she is much more elegant than me and has a real weakness for a nice jacket so I knew that she would both appreciate the design and model it with more panache than I. A big thanks to Laura for making Mum and me two happy chicks.
