Wool Pennies And Skeleton Keys...

Sweet September 
I've been waiting for you !

Time to bring out the woolens...

piles of wool snippets, as wool pennies are cut...
for a simple way to cut wool pennies.)

Background wools are chosen...
Candy Apple Red Stripe
Luscious Persimmon Orange Stripe
Dusky Purple and Eggplant Plaid

I'm using mostly textures from my stash.
I used a half dollar and a dime for the penny size...

These skeleton keys are about 8 inches long
and are heavy cast iron...
when I purchased them 
(I bought every single one the shop owner had !), 
I wasn't sure what I planned on doing with them - 
But, they were calling my name...
