Day 21 (OADCC)

Hi everyone, I know I haven't blogged for a few days but it doesn't mean that I haven't been making. Day 17, 18 and 19 I made more flower brooches, I decided it wasn't really necessary to write about each one of these as you have seen the idea a few times now. The flower is easy for me to do on those very rushed days and I still feel like I am getting something done. Anyway today is another day and I made a different kind of flower necklace. I made 3 rosettes out over layers of silvery fabric. and then sewed them onto a ruched length of ribbon. The sheer fabric is actually a silver check on a black background which makes a great pattern when layered over each other (detail below).

On Day 20 (yesterday) I quickly sewed up some cushions. I have had this fabric for years. Another great thing about this challenge, it has got me completing those little projects which I have been meaning to do for the longest time.

And due to Floss' suggestion I took a picture of one of my butterflies in amongst the flowers to see what that would be like. I think he looks quite charming perched on the Hydrangea.


  1. I love those silvery brooch!

    And the butterfly does look great on the flowers :)

  2. Yes! This challenge is great for getting your hands on doing something in a jiffy, even though it was put off for a long time!
    My ideas seem to be the same too, revamping old stuff. Quick and painless to do, and also considering how I have to pack / unpack at the dining table each afternoon... :D (We are putting up a visitor in my work room, you see.)

  3. I don't know how you're keeping it up, but it's lovely to see the results! I really do like the butterfly on the hydrangeas - thanks for giving it a try!
