Antique Brooch and Renulek's Summer Mat 25/25 Motif Challenge


After a few beautiful days this week here we had rain last night for the first time what must be over week,   its still heavy but at least the garden has had some rain.
I found this brooch in the market in Frome when I had my bad hand back in January and its been sitting in front of me waiting for some enhancements,   well I finally decided on what colour to use and here it is,  its not easy to photograph as the stones around the outside and middle shine all different colours   I use Lizbeth thread no 20 Purple Splendor,  this is the first brooch I have enhanced so it was a bit of a learning curve,  but I am pleased with it, hope you like it too.  This completes the 25 motif challenge no two.    I hope to start another one if Sharon will still let me.  

This is Renulek's summer mat I have completed the seventh round and now just started the eighth,  I have another two rounds to go.
Then I might start her collar,   see how things go.

My card for the CD Sunday Challenge a couple of weeks ago made a third,  I was so pleased and delighted to find out this morning.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend
Until we meet again Take care
