wool tops for felt making
a dinky jar of my favourite mother-of-pearl buttons
Gill W and I spent a happy half hour on the coach on the way home examining each and every button, there were an awful lot in such a tiny jar! A few gems included - a couple of hand carved tiny buttons, some smoke mother-of-pearl and a few very large buttons.
I do love a button
silk carrier rods for dyeing
hand dyed silk fibres from Oliver Twists
a lovely old tattered table runner
All in all a very enjoyable but tiring day spent with friends. The carrier rods and tattered runner are in the dye pot as we speak. I am going to try out my new fibres tomorrow. Until next time.....
