Today me and R played with my button tin. It was a very happy way to spend our time!
he made me a 'cake'...
and I rummaged through my tin and found all the 'sets' that were held together
by thread and made...a rainbow (of sorts) - I'm SO predictable!
hmmm, could have tidied the table and/or framed that one a bit better! Ho hum, never mind...was going to take some more photos - this was only about a 20th of what was in the tin, and I've got another tin full of buttons still on their cards...but my camera battery ran out, so that will have to wait for another day.
I've also just ordered some self-cover buttons so that I can use up some of my fabric scraps and have some little things to sell at upcoming Christmas craft fairs...so when they arrive I'll have even more! I've never made fabric covered buttons before so it will be interesting seeing how easy/fiddly it is...I'll let you know how it goes.
Hope you've had a lovely day.
