Have you ever had one of those days....yes actually I am sure you have, when you seem to never sit still yet when the time comes to settle down for the evening you feel as if you haven't achieved anything apart from a frantic state of mind? Well I had one of those days yesterday......so when it came to settling down for the evening I had a need to achieve something, anything. It worked, I achieved two things that I am really chuffed about. I made two buttons, large buttons with Liberty lace, silk, some french knots and a litttle bit of buttonhole edging. Then, just before bed I managed to fit in a long soak in the bath.....two good achievements don't you think?
So, in a back to front kind of way picture wise here are the buttons, resting on my hoop. My hoop which has in it the white on white piece from yesterday undergoing the next phase. More pleated and ruched silk with a french knot edge along both sides and another piece of silk in the process of being pleated and ruched alongside.
and the good news......I am giving these buttons away. Infact I am considering giving something away every week but don't quote me because it depends how busy I get!! It's easy too, just a comment is all, no questions....nothing, zero, zilch!
