Circles Challenge at JFF

Years ago my daughter bought some boxes of shapes on e-bay and hadn't a clue what to do with them so she gave them to me. I have used a few over the years and even emptied one of the boxes to use for storing bits and bobs. The other shapes just stayed in a drawer until good old Just for Fun posted this circles challenge.

This is what I made with 20 circles for the challenge-well I also used a toilet roll middle-a straw-a little bit of green material and some ribbon and lace.
If you go here there is a tutorial to make the circles flower

Thanks for the challenge and I hope next week it will be something else that I  will actually use after years of  of keeping things I thought would never be useful.

Its great , it must have taken some time and patience to get to youre finished result and its well worth it , I love the way so many of us get a totally different take on the challenge each week. well done, just goes to show everything comes in handy for something if you just hang on to it long enough. ( thats my excuse anyway lol )
