It's that time of the year again-birthday time. Many of my friends have their birthday's either in late August or September. Of course mine is in September. This brooch is the first of several gifts I'm making. It's embroidered with an assortment of beads. I also made the small matchbox to give it in. Then I made a very small (3/4" x 3/4") birthday card to go with the present. And it actually did not get lost in my purse before I gave it to her. Good things can come in small packages.
