Daisy's catch up - The week of the lurgy

I seem recently to have lost my bloggy words.
I have no explanation or excuse.
Just a loss of bloggy words.
I did manage to take photos though.
So the next few posts will be a catch up of
the last month or so and I begin with the 
week of the lurgy.
I got a horrible cold and conjunctivitis 
and spent two days with no energy in the comfy chair.
I missed a visit to the Country Living Fair so
to cheer myself up I had a sort and a play with
my bestest bits.

I tidied up the fabrics into piles

Separated the ribbons and buttons...

the small snippets of fabric (which I can never throw away!)

and the threads and lace.

Then I started to make.
This treasured bit of quilt was rediscovered in the tidy up.
So I embroidered some lovely words on it and hung it on the wall.

A Jessie Chorley inspired clock brooch made with
an antique quilt and some floral vintage fabric.

I also made a little rabbit from another piece of quilt and some
vintage linen.
Inspired this time by Julie Arkell.

Another bunny with a knitted jumper.

Then finally I made this brooch with vintage fabric and buttons.

What have you been making lately my bloggy friends?
