Hiding in the box ....
So here I found on a shelf, in a seldom used corner of the shed.......
This painted box.
I wonder what I stashed away in there?
The lid with painted flowers on it might be a bit of a hint.
Ah hah! This is obviously where I threw all those crocheted flowers and bits and bobs, cos I couldn't think of what to do with them.
But, I do like to look at them.
Not sure what I'll do with them - but they are pretty.
I think some of them were destined to be brooches.
This one has sparkly beads sewn into the centre.
And these are from my 'large rose' phase
And then I went delicate.
A couple of them have some felt sewn onto the bag, waiting to be a brooch, or hat decoration, or something.
Oh, and I tried to needlefelt this one after it was crocheted.
What do you think of the effect? It sort of makes it look vintage, I think.
These were the yoyo brooches that I didn't end up making into brooches.
And these - hmmmm, not really sure.
These were needlefelted and beaded.
Sort of reminds me of the ocean and rock pools.
Another brooch idea.
