Darning revisited .....

New 'darned books' created for Grace Whowell (who owns and runs the gorgeous Beyond Measure), just in time for the Edinburgh Yarn Festival

 Years ago, with two small children and a need to make some money, I adopted the approach of only using materials that I already owned. One thing I had in abundance was a stash of previously loved woollies that had been lost to washing machine disasters. I no longer make these flower corsages, but I did hold on to the felted wool and scraps of my hand dyed linen threads - some of which have been used for the books.
