Wooly Flower

Today I did some shopping in Leamington Spa, nothing exciting , school uniforms and pencil cases.

I went with my sister, so we had to have a nice cup of coffee out.

I thought you may like to see this brooch which used to be an old aran jumper which I boiled then dyed.

I used this lovely thread from Madeira called lana which is 50% wool.

Hope you have had a good day.
