salvaged pieces

I have been working on felt paintngs all week......
The customers who ordered the commission piece came in to see it and they were very happpy...
I frustrated with one painting and after an early morning felting party (me & the felt)...I decided to cut it up. Two thirds were framed as painting and the other third (grrrrr) was made into pouches!!!!!!I am happy with the salvaged pieces.
