I love combining fabric and yarn, so I went for a rummage in the various boxes and baskets of fabrics and scraps I have lurking on shelves to find a suitable centre for my sunflower. I was hoping for something with a little more pattern to it, but I was happy enough with this brown cord. It had lovely texture, if not pattern.
It turned out better than I hoped and was looking forward to sticking pins in it.
It was getting late, too late to start rummaging for pins and taking nice photos. Photos would be much better in the morning anyway, when there would be some natural light!
So I went to bed and left the sunflower on the table for the morning... and it was found by my youngest first thing, who is currently fast asleep with it in her bed having not let go of it all day!
Hence the dark photos, and the lack of pins, and my remaining need for a pincushion! I will make more however (not that I need an excuse), and post a pattern in due course, remembering to hide them before morning this time.
p.s. Off for a peek at Handmade Monday...
