Broooooch - such an ugly yet good word.  There was a time when I wouldn't have been seen dead wearing one, but now I love them.  This morning, I sent out a little congratulatory care package to my oldest friend who is finally finishing up her uni degree. I am really proud of her.  Anyway - the package included this crafty little brooch that I made last night.  I used a little embroidered applique - isn't it folk-tastic? - that I picked up at On Travelling yesterday and stitched it to some purple felt them blanket stitched (my current obsession) it to another piece of felt to make it more sturdy.  I can definitely see it brightening up a coat or jacket this winter.

Damn, I love making stuff.
