Butterflies, and other stuff,

Another new pattern , this time for a brooch, being tried out, leaf needs working on still, not happy with this attempt, but in the meantime, the plan is now to test drive it and see how well it survives on my jacket!

...and, here's a sneaky peek of my valentine swap, errrr, thingy! (shhh, it's a secret), excellent swap organised by the lovely Lucy Locket.

The big news in Lucykate land, is I have managed to get myself the last place on a Julie Arkell workshop being held on the 2nd February, here, in my home town! The list arrived this morning as to what I have to bring, looks like a bit of a thrifting trip is going to be needed (any excuse!) for some of the bits & bobs, old books, fabrics etc...

I'm so excited!

Oooh you lucky thing going on a workshop - and needing to go shopping first? Even better!!!

Love your butterfly and the sneaky peek for the swap! I really must start making my gift as it won't look good if the organiser is late!

What a bit of luck - it'll be a marvellous workshop!
I've made a start of my swap 'secret thing' too.

That butterfly would be a cute hair clip too! Mmmmmmmm! yummy butterfly goodness!

Katy said...

Yes, the butterfly would make an EXCELLENT hairclip. Do it do it do it! :)
The secret swap thingy looks fab...but what could it be?????? I think I recognise the shape...it's been a cat, an owl, and a dog before (if I am spotting correctly). Don't keep us in suspense for long, will you?

I saw the butterfly sitting on the stick and thought of a dragonfly. Make a dragonfly! Do it do it do it! :) (Just copying you Katy!)

Am so envious of your Julie Arkell place. so. envious. Will expect full report afterwards

love the butterfly, and I think it would make a lovely dragonfly too, or you could even make a Ladybug (er ladybird) have a whole insect theme! bees anyone. and yes to hairclips!
