I found the old folksy rose painting at my local opshop and decided I needed to hang it above my bedside table. It inspired a set of rose-pins, like the ones I made a couple of years ago now- from wool felt gathered and folded. I was drinking tea with my mother and grandmother at the time, and they suggested the addition of some glass beads in the centre of each rose. It's funny how I never would have thought about adding anything to these, but I'm glad i listened to them. Half have beads and the other half have embroidered French knots in the centre of all the petals. Sometimes a little extra bling is okay.
