A couple of completed projects

I think with the slightly improved weather and the bit extra light on an evening, I've been busying myself with a few projects and staying away from the computer on a night.

Last weekend I cut hundreds, no exaggeration, of fabric squares for patchwork, some vintage and some new. I just had that thing going on where I wanted to mosh up a load of random patterns together and do patchwork.
A week on and all I have to show for it is a small patchwork apron!

I'm sure other things will follow now I have so many bits cut.

I've also been crocheting flowers and doing some fibre felting, some of which will form a brooch.

And lastly, a little cat brooch. 
I need to make a few new things in the coming fortnight as I will be having a stall at a local event on May 3rd.

Hi Sally
How are you? It feels a bit more like Spring doesn't it, glad you are warmer and are enjoying your crafting. I love the cat brooch, such a lot of work has gone into it.

Hi Becky, nice to hear from you, yes I do remember the Yellow Buttercup and I remember looking at your new blog a while back but I forgot to make it part of my blog list which I will do now so I can see what you've been up to.
Thanks for the nice comments about the 'makes'.
