Thankful and fish and chips

I started making some Suffolk puff flowers to use on my page for the twisted sketch#48 and can't stop making them!  I've done about 20.  They will come in very useful though, so it's not a waste.  They are very easy to make, just cut a circle of material, any size, bearing in mind that the finished flower will be half the size of the circle, gather the edges with small running stitches then pull together, tie the thread off then add a button or something similar to the centre to cover the gathers.  You are supposed to press them before adding the button, but I by passed that bit.
These are the 2 pages I made using these flowers.

Twisted Sketch#48 - twist is handmade anyway, anyhow
