365 / 82 & 83 - brooches, moustaches and an oak leaf

I am sneakily combining two days into one blog post again, not because I am lazy (though truly I am) but because it was so cold here yesterday that we had to flee to someone else's house to enjoy the pleasures of their central heating... thus allowing no time to sit at the computer and write a blog post! Our new boiler is being fitted at the moment and apparently we will have working heating tomorrow, hurrah, but until then I am typing this wearing fingerless gloves and more layers of clothing than can possibly be attractive.

So, the craftiness...

The day before yesterday (day 81) I worked on tea pins, a second batch of poppies, some moustaches and a couple of other brooches that needed making...
Then yesterday (day 82) I finished lots of moustaches. I also found the perfect oak leaf on the way to work and spent a fair bit of time at work planning how best to use it! Here is the lovely leaf itself, my sketch of it and the felt I am thinking about using (I'm worried it's a little pale but I think it will be okay)

UPDATE: My poppy design is now available as a sewing pattern! Visit my shop to see all my printable PDF patterns
