Gorgeous sweaters ready for recycling into pixie hats, woolen dresses and some boys jackets.
Oh how much I love wool!
Snugy, soft, warm and the lovely feeling of "home" when you wear a wooly jumper. Just such a good thing to be working on when the weather is chilly as it is at the moment.
I am planning on doing some botanical embroideries on the garments I will be making from these. Perhaps some lovely woodland toadstools, flowers, acorns, pine-cones etc. The poppet's grandparents are visiting this week so a nice opportunity to do a little bit of hand stitching while enjoying their company.
Will keep you posted on the results!
