Brooch finished

So after the day before yesterday's failure I tried another attempt at covering the pin and this time I was satisfied. 

If you look closely at the first picture you'll see that I covered the pin with some tatting at both ends so the only part that shows is the head of the safety pin. Now some people may find that annoying but I think the baubles will attract the attention away from that. Anyway I can live with it as it is!  I'm easily pleased!

I put the pin on some denim to show up how it'll look on the coat and then took it to Tat Days to show off!!!! 

 Before I put it in it's travelling box I sprayed the brooch with Scotch Guard so it won't pick up dirt.  This is a trick I sometimes use with earrings too so they don't get the oil off off my scrawny old neck!!

Very colorful and clever baubles! I also like the coil-less pin and the tip about Scotch Guard!

Well, Tally Tatty, you've found out what I'm doing!!!! I ADORE the Houtz brothers and have met both of them. If only they weren't happily married and I was a lot younger. Old people like me can dream, eh?
