Self-Imposed Limitations

I had another fight with my sewing machine and it is in being repaired. So, with the sewing on hold I had to find other ways of keeping up the crafting.

I decided that in the run-up to two big Christmas markets, the Grey Lynn Festival and then the Auckland Art and Craft Fair, I would make a brooch a day. The catch was that it had to be done without buying any new materials.

I dug out the pretty (but oh so messy) tails of embroidery thread and got work. These….

Became these (over the course of a week).
I am also just about done with my next knitting pattern. I am just lining up a photo shoot (and weaving in ends), so hopefully I will have that all ready to go next week. 
And, because I am trying to be healthy and motivated, there is still walking happening:

Spring and winter are still fighting each other at the moment, but I’m slowly seeing more green.
