A little while back I posted an admiring comment on [Amy's] Crafty Shenanigans - her mosaic of makes for June was really impressive and I thought it would be a long time before I could do one like that in a month (I'm a bit slow). Amy sent me an encouraging e-mail, followed by this little package in the post:
She had very sweetly put together a little kit, complete with instructions, for making a flower brooch. Her idea was that it was so easy and satisfying to make that perhaps I would have something extra to show at the end of the month! I made it yesterday afternoon while watching Andy Murray's valiant effort at Wimbledon.
I can see why she called it a "procrastination brooch" - it was fun to make and I can imagine sewing lots of these while I should be doing other things!
Thank you, Amy!
