little country churches....

The next series of wool felt brooches
I love driving through the countryside of NSW Australia
and seeing the old wooden country churches many of them over 100 years old.
It is these little churches (not forgetting that many were used as schools on weekdays) that inspired this collection celebrating Christian Faith, Worship & Community.
For this series I have made background one colour and introduce design with thread.
 The Simplicity of design draws your eye to the Cross in the roof space.
Four layers of pure wool felt are used for each church, all layers are hand cut, layered and sewn and no two can ever be exactly the same.
They measure approx 5cm tall and 3cm wide.
 and of course some sweet little houses
& another bird
You can see more of my brooches either by visiting my
madeit store Eclectic Moi
or by using the labels at the bottom of this post.
I hope you are having a creative week
I have been working on an interesting series of brooches that I hope to share this week with you and crocheting a rug which I will share as a work in progress with you this week also ;)
happy creating!
