A brooch for a boat...

Gem and I recently had a little swap, she had her eye on one of my hanging boats and I really needed a brooch for my winter coat.
I left the fabric choice up to Gem and her great taste...and I wasn't disappointed :)
I'm still looking for the perfect winter coat...it has to be grey but the right shade of grey!! But my new brooch looks fabulous on my autumn coat!!!Excuse the poor quality - I took it in the mirror and the light was rubbish in my hallway...
Here's the hanging boat for my side of the swap.
(sorry Lesley hope you got my email xxxx)
I have some more boats cut out waiting to be sewn...but I keep getting sidetracked...really must make a list so I don't have so many half finished projects!!

I love your boats - the one you gave me is hanging in the window of my eldest sons room. Gems brooch is lovely, it looks great on that coat, i have one but its more summery - i have it on a white bag at the moment. x

Aw that was a better post title than mine :D it does go well with the coat too. I am looking forward to the next swap now - it will be bigger and better and full of cra..stash stuff!

Hope it wasn't Lesley who wanted the boat, if so sorry Lesley! XX

She makes those brooches so beautifully, and your boats are so special as well. What a perfect swap. xxx

Oh cute boat! Maybe you could make yourself a flower cushion instead of nighties. Hey why can't we wear such sweet nighties too? OK maybe out of a sheet instead of a pillowcase!!
