I ususally go to my favorite charity shops at least once a week...don't know why but I love picking up frames, real wooden ones, not the plastic that is in the stores today.  I have now found a use for them!  I am felting old sweaters to make many different things, mittens, pincushions and penny rugs.  There is wool all over the house, the rest of the family is barely tolerating me these days!

Thanks for sharing.

writes: Hi there!
These are just beautiful. My mom-in-law made penny eggs and I adored them! She gave me her whole collection (dozens of them) and she's since passed away and which makes them even more special. Thank you for the wonderful post. It brought back great memories for me.
