At least one of my new year's resolutions seems to have stuck. I swore this year, that materials couldn't come into the house unless I planned on using them. Then I treated myself to a handful of FQs from Fabric Rehab with no thoughts on what to do with it when it arrived.
I'm pretty sure I bought it because it was pouring with rain and had been for a few days, so the springtime brooches were born. I made a few, then a few more and this is the third batch (the first 7 having already been rehomed). And of course they're entirely hand stitched. I really must get round to buying that thimble:)
