Scrap buster flowers

I've just made up a couple of fabric flowers to use up some of my huge bag of scraps, a few hundred more and I might have reached the bottom of the bag!

What is it about fabric scraps that makes you unable to throw them away?!  I save even the smallest pieces and think mine are multiplying every time I take my eye off the bag!
From this pile of scraps…                                  … to these pretty flowers!

I'm going to stitch some brooch findings on the back.

I also found some pictures on my camera of  'A Coat for a Boat' at the Knitting and Stitching show at the Alexandra Palace in October.  It's amazing!!
