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!


  1. awww, that's so lovely! Amy is fab!

  2. Wow it turned out amazing - I'm so pleased for you! They're easy and quick aren't they!? Just imagine it in your favourite fabrics... yum!!

  3. What a nice idea, and a lovely brooch to boot! Win all around (unlike AM at Wimbledon unfortunately!).

  4. That is a lovely brooch. I'm with you Catherine, I wish one day I could have a good number of finished projects in a month. But I'm slow, too.
    We just have to keep trying, we will get there!
