Don't you just LOVE wednesday's? Say hello to wednesday  "hello wednesday" It's all downhill from now on to the weekend - yippee!!!

It was a little bit slow starting at the SECC on Sunday, I hate standing around twiddling my thumbs so I started to have a play.  I could see Tony doing the silent tutter "what is she doing now!".  A little wander around the stand - grosgrain black and white swiss dot,   ummmm a large black and white spotty button, ooooh the polka dot ribbon also in black and white. Perfect just what I needed.

A snip here, a fold there, a few stitches and...."What are doing?", I looked up to find a group of ladies all watching me.   Ummmm - playing!  I then started to explain what I was hoping to achieve and to pop back later to see it finished.....


Pop back they did, I was asked to put together enough ribbons and buttons for a workshop of 50 ladies - they wanted bright Easter colours.  Rather than all making the same colour brooch, I chose, orange, lime and yellow in each of the ribbons and buttons, so that they could mix and match all the ribbons and buttons together and come up with some super colour combos.  I hope you all enjoy your workshop ladies in Bishopbriggs this weekend.

All throughout the day I was asked how I made my brooch, so in the end I said it would be this weeks Hello wednesday project and that I would do a tutorial - so here goes, it is a long one, but I wanted to make sure I missed no stages.  Regular readers of the blog will notice this is very simiiar to the football card I made last summer here.
