Rusty Cut-Outs....

I really loved getting down and dirty in DH's shed the other day making those wooden buttons. So while the going was good I tried my hand at another task I've had on my 'to do' list for quite some time : : Rusty Tin Cut-Outs.....
Armed with a pile of rusty old corrugated iron from our farms original old homestead and a pair of very sharp well lubricated (this is essential) tin snips I set to work...
I used a nail to scratch out the outline for the ducks before cutting but the stars and hearts were all done free-hand....
Next I'm going to have a go at knitting needles and crochet hooks, boy, you could really have fun with this!!! :P
Hugs..... Jodie xx-xx
