Unexpected gifts

One of my studio pals gave me these today.....



They are a strangle little collection - so obviously I am unable to resist taking ownership of them.....
An odd archive of sorts.


Dyed wool samples in lovely cardboard boxes.  Its hard to know what I like about them best, the containers, the contents or the lovely hand written recipes and test results.


Just debating as to whether I have time to develop these into something for my MA work, or whether to save them and not rush it.  Thanks Martin - lovely present.
