New brooch

Cor two posts in a row which don't contain either chickens or gift tags!

Instead I have made one of my button brooches (ignore the awful photographs - better ones will be taken as soon as there is decent light!)

It is 100% recycled/upcycled - nothing new went into the making of this brooch. The buttons are from Oxfam, the felt from the scrapstore, the thread was given to me by Lupin in a swap years ago and the brooch back also came in a swap but I can't remember who from.

Once better photographs have been taken it will be listed in one of my shops :)
