Rag Rose

I have mentioned that I felt rather inspired at the Crossiant Neuf Summer Party, the loveliest little festival in Wales. Well this is my creation, rag rose brooch, what do you think?
Maybe I should add some to my Etsy store Sew Excited or take a few along to Crediton community market that I'm thinking of going to in Sept.

Festival Fever!

I have just spent an amazing long weekend in Wales. Mr PB, Arthur and I went along to the Crossiant Neuf Summer party It is totally powered by solar power! We had great food, great music, great fun, time to chill. What I wanted to share with you was a fantastic stall I came across. The stitch doctors, an area where you can embellish your own clothes or pick up a bar gin. Two sewing machines where powered by peddling on the bike, there where lots of frills and spills to add along with buttons and ribbons. It was very inspiring, that even on a get away from it all kind of place that sewing has taken such a strong hold! Although I didn't take part I am keen to embellish more.
