I thought I could smell spring in the air a couple of days ago so with a burst of energy I changed the pots on the dresser in the kitchen to blue and the curtains to yellow gingham . Then knowing I would not be happy with the winter red T,cosy that had matched the red gingham curtains I set to making a yellow one . I could say didn't cost a penny . Just bits and pieces from my stash . A bit of free hand drawing and my cosy is a one off .
These faded roses were from M&S. They were not faded when I bought them 3 weeks ago . They were complete in the little jam jar £4 . They now feel like paper . They haven't dropped any petals so they can stay as long as I'm able to keep the dust away .
