The Balls of Wool

Small find at a garage sale in town, a lot of balls of wool, unearthed at the bottom of a box.
Several colors to choose from, but my preference has shifted to soft colors, a little faded... I like those !

The balls of wool The balls of wool

This morning, opening the shutters, as a radiant sun dress required a little more spring.
And why not take pleasure in fashioning a simple broach from a small safety pin, a piece of old lace, a tiny pearl button and a silver medal ?

Take a tour of the garden to pick some hellebores and then find a place for these delicate balls of wool.
