I embroidered these little brooches for two very special visitors this week. Lesley and Sally are two members of our family I discovered through a family history website about 5 years ago. This week was the first time we have all been able to meet as the girls are both frequent globe trotters with very busy schedules - and Sally lives in Australia!
I found the pattern for these little hearts on Maggie's blog here and adapted them to suit my idea. I used some vintage linen cut from a half completed embroidered picture abandoned by someone about 50 years ago. I added some buttons and up-cycled two acetate boxes I've been saving for just this project! Two little notecards and chocolate completes my gift.
So we've had a lovely time this week. I've enjoyed showing the girls some of Wales and some old ancestoral places. Sadly I wasn't able to arrange the weather and we didn't see much of the sun - but this didn't spoil things too much. There are bound to be some digital scrapbook pages to follow soon!
