More brooches.

Isn't it strange that I'd already decided on blue brooches for today's post?  I could just say they are in honour of the new Royal baby boy but then I'd be stretching my imagination a bit!!!  I usually decide on posts a day or two ahead so was rather chuffed when Kate and William decided to honour my blog by producing a boy yesterday!!!

I can now make these without checking myself every few seconds!!!!  I sit with the laptop on my knees in the evening working on patterns and am always checking and double checking as I go.  
Most of the fun in these brooches is the rummaging through my thread and bead stash deciding what to use next!!!  The other evening I was in a 'blue mood' so here's what happened!!!!! 

Of course this colour always reminds me of Diane who is a 'blue lady'!!!  I will add these two to the Etsy shop some time soon although I need to take photos of them first and then package them - not my favourite part!!!!

So, what colour will be next?  I'll have a look in my stash later to decide.  SUCH fun.

Isn't it strange - the new baby was born on the 23rd here!! - quite amazing, really, when you think about it, the accident of place and time of one's birth.
I think your blue brooches are very appropriate!

Oh, how I love blue! I get so many compliments when I wear one of your pieces. Maybe it's time to go shopping again. ;-)

Beautiful brooches!
All my honour is yours, as you tat with beads. I mean you make miracle with the beads!

Sorry, Mary Tatsme, I'm not sure which thread it is. I THINK it's a hand dyed. I'll take a look in my stash later and get back to you.
