I have been quiet of late, with life and death weighing on me in equal measure. I’ve kept my hands busy through this time though, and here is one peep. Inspired by an Eleanor Farjeon fairy tale where an old woman realises that “all hearts are green enough”, a green heart brooch to remind. Modelled by my very lovable little girl, who reminds me daily the benefits of being young at heart.
My poor pup Max (well actually he is classed as a senior citizen!) has been horribly ill. He had to go through a nasty operation in which they removed a cancerous mole. We were worried for a while, but he should be fine now. What a relief! So for the last two weeks I’ve spent most of my time home with him making sure he doesn’t walk around, move much at all and jump up and down. Poor thing he hated not being able to be his usual bouncy self. I hated it too. Now we are pretty much back to normal. And I can stop being a bloody prison guard. Phew. Not in my nature to be so controlling. But it had to be done so his stitches could heal properly.
Made some brooches while performing my prison guard duties.

(I might have to say good bye soon to my favourite op-shopped cardigan.It looks quite grungy raggedy in pictures. But I love it still.)
Hope you have a nice night!
