The songs were written by Harry Dacre an English songwriter born in 1860. He was famous for 'Daisy Bell' aka 'A Bicycle Made For Two' a song I remember singing with my nan when I was little. I have just discovered that the other song he was known for in the early 20's was 'I'll be your sweetheart'. I didn't know this until after I had made the brooch, spooky?

A collection of bits... feathers, cards and hat pins ready for a Mad Hatter's top hat. The lawn tape just caught my eye, I don't think that will be getting cut up.
I never knew it existed. It smells so bad, not sure if that's the yarn or where it has been stored.
This I am very excited about. Only last night I was at my friend's house and the conversation turned to hats, as it often does when I am around. Monopoly was mentioned and here it is, fresh from the booty, 50p well spent!

What an amazing afternoon spent at Wheels Day 2010, Farnham. Some of the most amazing cars I have ever seen, just a shame about the weather. It didn't dampen the mood too much and it was great to catch up with the Chloe and Scarlet. We stood in the middle of a muddy field getting soaked whilst discussing future events, leaflets, roller derby's, caravans and vegetarianism! Good luck with that one ladies ♥
Couldn't resist getting Morris a present for above his bowl.
So... Saturday 24th April is the next big event. I shall be joining Tiger Lilly's in High Wycombe at the Roller Derby (10-4) where I will have my creations on sale. Good practice before the Handmade Fair in Winchester.
