365 / 98 - more tea, more poppies and a hunt for some beads

Yesterday I was rather sleepy, so I stuck to doing nice simple things like sewing finished brooches together and doing more work on the pile of poppy pins...
... you may notice that I also started a little leaf-less cherry blossom pin. I've run out of the beads I used for the cherry blossom pins (all now sold) so I've been hunting through my stash to find a suitable alternative. I tried the bright pink seed beads pictured but they are too small (this pin will be finished listed at some point as a "test" item, priced like an ooops like that slightly wonky tea addict pin in the foreground). Today I will be trying out some white pearlescant beads that are the right size. I think I might make a few just with the flower (like the one in the photo) as well as a few with leaves as I quite like the cute flower all on its own like that.

As well as doing some sleepy sewing, I have been taking LOTS of photos for other people... My employer has got me taking product photos (this is what happens when your boss knows you take your own product photos!) and my boyfriend has got me photographing yet more of his books...

Mmmm...bowls of felt. The poppies are lovely. Cute AND smart. I saw some little felt robots and thought of you - (http://thepigeonloftuk.blogspot.com) Obviously not as good as handmade but I couldn't resist :D
