spiral brooches - for that 'to the rescue pressie' moment

Do you ever have unexpected visitors who drop by and present you with a gift?  You stand there in blind panic, desperately trying to think of something that you could give them?  No, there's definiteily nothing suitable in the bag full of bric-a-brac under the stairs destined for the recycling shop.  Any unopened pots of homemade jam?  Nope, they were finished long ago.  Running out of ideas?  Well, never fear, buy one of these to pop in your top drawer so that it will there should any emergency arise?

Every spiral brooch is unique.  Handknitted, edged in a contrasting colour and finished off with a button in the middle.  Metal pin secured to the back.

Got a particular colour combination in mind?  Please get in touch as I'd like to help!

2011 gift swap

I'm forward planning here for - gulp - Christmas! - did I really say that?! 

I have several male relatives to buy for this Christmas. I thought I'd try something different this year - swapping Mosaic Tree items with other crafters' products for Christmas gifts! I'm looking for items £5-£15 and will happily swap my same price items (more than one to bring it up to the equivalent value if need be). Each person would pay for their own p&p. 

Check out the photo albums at www.facebook.com/MosaicTree to get an idea of what I create - and prices (and a selection of Mosaic Tree products) are at www.folksy.com/shops/MosaicTree

Please message me on facebook (www.facebook.com/MosaicTree) if you're interested and have some ideas for swaps (don't worry if all the possible swaps don't work out - I've got to bear in mind the personal tastes of the gift recipients).  I'll keep folks posted of any swaps via Mosaic Tree blog.
