Use Up and Make Do

 I've called this post Use Up and Make Do because
 I've been finding new old things as I sort and clean my studio 
and I really do need to use them up and make do!
One thing I've learned about myself is that 
I can certainly fit a lot of stuff into a small space!


An old glass candlestick that I had aged
...ages ago, 
I added a wool blend, fibre stuffed ball 
that I had created
...ages ago.
Then I slow stitched (read; hand stitched at great speed)
 a velveteen strawberry,
twisted some crochet cotton from my hoard into a cord,
 added an old button, 
and
 tied the base with 
an over dyed stained piece
of cheesecloth.
