The stock at 'ALF Creations @ the Star Heart Café' has been changing over the past year or so. My collection of fabric brooches started with my crochet flower brooches, then moved on to my virtuous flower brooches and then I introduced my Star Heart Felt brooches (which were originally pendants).
The virtuous flower brooches were inspired by a Sunday School lesson I gave called 'What To Wear'. The lesson comes from these words from Colossians 3: 12-14 (NIV).
'Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience ... forgive as the lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love.'
I probably forget to 'put on' these virtues far too much, but I feel I am a much better person when I do remember to 'wear' them.
Last November I crocheted Poppy brooches and then even more recently I began integrating them all into greeting cards. Something of their evolution can be seen below.
