Catching up: batches of flowers

My month without the internet has clearly made me forget how technology works: I forgot to charge my camera batteries before trying to take loads of photos today. What an idiot!

I did at least get some photos taken before the batteries died completely...

Here's what I was working on last night (day 258) ...
... sewing together a "new" mobile (the pieces were actually cut out way back in March!) whilst catching up on episodes of America's Next Top Model missed during the past month - if anyone tells me who wins before I wanted the finale I will be very unhappy!

Then way back in mid-April, in my first internet-free week (Crafting 365 days 238-242) I made lots of batches of floral brooches:
I wasn't doing very well with my "design a day" challenge anyway, and then no internet was just the last straw so I put it on hold and turned my attention to batch-making. Some got started from scratch, and others I'd been working on for a while in spare moments and I just needed a big push to get them all finished. I worked my way through most of my dvd collection whilst beading this lot!
It's great having a nice stock of the poppies, and lovely to have a pink version in small, medium and large.
I really do love that pink, I've been wearing my pink poppies much more than I wear the red or white ones (though I do love them, they just don't match my wardrobe quite as well). I'll be taking close up pictures of the pink poppies soon and adding them to my Etsy, etc, but the battery charger must do it's thing first...

I'm glad you were able to get those pictures before the camera died (I always forget to charge the batteries). They are lovely pictures!
