A bauble brooch

I have a black winter coat. It's a lovely coat and very warm too - an advantage some winters!!!!

Some six weeks or more ago I decided I 'needed' a new bright brooch to wear on this coat so set off making baubles. Well, that's a bit of a fib as I think I'd already done one or two before deciding what to use them for!!! Remember the 'gecko phase'? Well baubles are currently sort of like that for me as I love making them but never quite know for what purpose.

I got them all done and then needed to add them to a pin (or something). I tried to cover the coilless pin with a length of the leg pattern from the flower fairy which you can find here but that was an unmitigated disaster as so many of my unplanned tatting 'episodes' are!!!!

I really like this one, the colors brighten up any winter! Looks like a fun phase to go through :) I still have to make the gecko I have this plan for the gecko that I have on my "things to do list".
Now I have to add this too, where is my notebook?

I don't want you to see me as being rude but they remind me of fishing lures , :) . Very pretty though. And I want that book also ! I need to make some baubles. I'm thinking about trying some by blocking technique.
