After almost two weeks of coughing, I've finally kicked the Evil Bronchitis of Doom. A few days ago I simply decided I was so over being sick, and that was the turning point. Coincidence, or mind over matter? At any rate, I'm relieved to finally feel human again.
While I was sick, I spent most of my time sipping tea, watching Once Upon a Time, and making felt flowers. At our wedding I want to have lots of felt flowers similar to those created my Muncle Fred Art on etsy. Since I have more free time than money, I'm making my own flowers, and they look really good!
While I was at it, I made this brooch, too. It's gotten so many compliments at work, and it was super easy. I just made 3 small flowers using these instructions, glued them to a felt circle with a few leaves from a sprig of fake flowers, and glued a pin back onto the whole shebang. Voilà!
