A little excited…

… quite a big bit excited actually!

As those of you who read my facebook page would know, this week I have been on the receiving end of some very exciting news. "One Day In May" now has a distributor. Yaaaay! What's more, my first two patterns will be available for stores to purchase before Christmas! Wish I could tell you more. As soon as I am able I will post all the details as well as a list of stockists.

So, I've already shown you "Waterlily Dreaming Needle Keep". Here is my 2nd pattern… "Waterlily Dreaming Brooch." Almost everyone who has seen the needle keep has said, "Oooo that would make a lovely brooch" … so here it is. It will be a smaller pattern, just a little A6 one. Great as a little card insert for a crafty friends birthday.

Its a simple little pattern, using just 2 fabrics, half a packet of seed beads and a brooch back. I love how the beads bring a tiny bit of sparkle that draws your eye to the centre.

I am so looking forward to seeing the combinations of fabric and beads that all you crafty ladies come up with! The above brooch is made in salmon pink, but think of all the different pinks there are…

Fabric choices for Waterlily Dreaming Brooch 
Mum tells me there are beautiful lilac waterlilies in Queensland.  I think I've seen a photo of red ones too. The possibilities are deliciously endless!

I've also been stitching away on my "murky blue" project… more pics soon.

Until next time,
