Happy Flowers.....

..... last year we had a pincushion stitch-a-bit and I received this lovely top:


... and do you remember the lovely wallhanging Toni made for me?

Here it is hanging up in the bathroom .... I keep some nice scented soap in the pocket....


well... there is too many pretty things to look at on the felt top so I decided not to do a pincushion.....

but use Toni's idea for another flower


now I have one for the other little room where one has time to sit and look at details ... 


 I have added some scented soap too .....

(made with felted blanket and old denim jeans {which had shrunk!})
