A patchwork post and my first give away

I make these patchwork collars attaching them to coloured vests. Summery I know, but have chosen the brown and blue one for my first give away. This one is a small size 10 ish, or for a young teen. First email that loves it gets it. I haven't done a give away before so hope thats how to. I'm still trying to work out how to put a background on my blog.
There's not a pattern for these tops as I sort of made it up, but hope it inspires you.

A broach a day keeps the January blues away

I like to make myself a new broach at this time,to cheer up my winter coat. On this post I've made 1940s style woolly posy broaches, knitted cherries, felted apple tree badge and fabric flower puff broach.I think I overdosed on making acorn badges in the autumn.If you want to know more details on how to make any or buy one they will be 6.50 until the end of January. Happy making.

Watch out Pinks

Our pinks are flowering on the allotment. Not headline news I know, and they should know better if Jack and Jackie Frost comes. But they lift the soul this time of year.
