Fresh Today

I've just popped in from my studio to post my latest makes.
Another felt and fibre necklace--I'm having lots of fun making these! And a new hand-dyed cotton rose brooch. There's good news on that front.   I've worked out that I don't need to iron the fabric or cut it neatly. Tearing off a strip of the right width works just as well. Now I can get on with some other colours.
And I've picked the first two real roses the Spring from my Lorraine Lee bush. It normally blooms way earlier than this, but I suspect there's been just a bit too much neglect in the garden lately.

Oooh I just had a thought... if you are tearing the cotton, how would it look with the raw edge on the edges?

great going on the progress.
