Birds & Brooches

 I drew open the curtains to take photos of my new fabric stash just now, and to my surprise there were snowflakes falling down.
I had just come from one trip out and thought it might rain, but no.
Snow.



 This brooch ( from the Rowan "Winter Warmers" book) will be a Valentine's Day gift.

I almost made 2 separate posts about these, but now I see aqua blue and purplish mauve must be on my mind(!)
 
Choosing beads was a challenge as the person this is intended for is not a big fan of yellows or oranges-my first choice.

 I couldn't resist fabric printed with birds and words ;)
 I have no idea what I'll make with it yet.


Do you have any particular color combos you like right now?
