Ring a Ring a Rosy

I have been making these buttonholed rings in spare moments for some time. The phrase "purple circle" keeps coming to mind, so they are all made from different purple (or mostly purple) yarns and threads. Some are made over foundation rings of plastic, others were made using a couronne stick. I have no idea what I will eventually do with them, but Dale has an interesting idea on her blog.

We are in dire need of pieces for the Designing Women display at the Craft Fair next weekend. I dug out an old piece of work - scraps of threads and fabrics woven on a frame. I made this in 2002, so it is overdue for recycling.
I cut it away from its frame and I am going to attach some of the rings to it. Watch this space.
