Here are the little brooches Rosie and I made together.
Each one features a hand woven or printed fabric with some exquisite embroidery stitches, placed snuggly in shaped wood frame with a ‘vintage look’ brooch pin on the back
They’re now in the Little Beehive co-op, Nelson and are priced at $35each.
If anyone would like to make one using their own special fabrics in this way, we will shortly be offering the frames separately for DIY projects. Please send a message if you are interested.
I’m using leftover bobbins of silk, cotton and wool to weave some colourful stripe combinations.
A few centimetres of each to be used as ‘blankets’ for some new Christmas decorations I’ve been working on.
Weaving a little bit of fun, merry and bright this season.
What a day full of hand made love.
Thank you lovely customers, lovely stall holders, entertainment, food, sunshine and joy.

Here’s a very small woven wall decoration I made for a wee corner of the studio. I improvised with my square loom plus some scraps of thick wool and cotton. It was really fun and quick to weave.
I also wove some small squares to use as make up remover wipes. They are made of machine washable organic cotton which is sooo soft and gentle.
Lastly, some tree decorations. Squares folded in half diagonally and stitched into triangle shapes. Glue a cinnamon stick inside and stitch a sparkly star on the top.
Both these little looms are available from my Etsy shop here.
Ps. There is free shipping within New Zealand from now until the end of the year!
Started properly thinking about Christmas now. So yesterday I got some stitching done on these little gifts for the Great Christmas Market.
And I now have gift wrapping available for anyone who purchases items through my Esty Shop. There’s a choice of patterned or plain paper, with a satin ribbon and hand stamped tag with your message written on it. (please note colours may vary) and then it’s posted to anywhere in the world.
The last mailing day from NZ for International parcels is Wednesday 29th November.
Jewel colour weaving coming off the loom today. I’m working on some new products with a friend Rosemary Horn. She will add some embroidery stitch magic to them and they will become little wall art pieces and brooches.
Rosie and I will be selling these amongst other lovely goodies at the Great Christmas Market on the 26th November.
