To my birthday sister: don’t read this post.
This would probably be more appropriately called my "work in piles"–no progress on this one, yet. I’m leaving tomorrow to go to my sister’s to celebrate her birthday with our families. We both talk about one day making ourselves a knitting needle case so I thought for her birthday I’d beat her to it and whip one up for her. (at least I’m hoping I whip it up. It has to be done today!) I’m using some wonderful linen that I received from Tracy and some of JoAnn’s vintage line fabric. I’m hoping to figure out a way to incorporate one of my buttons as the closure.
And when I mentioned a forgotten friend in my title I was referring to a mysterious box that arrived today in the mail. Enclosed was a slew of buttons from my pottery classes in Wisconsin.
We pretty much left town in a hurry and I wasn’t able to finish the class. I had to leave behind some glazed but unfired buttons. So today I got this wonderful package from my instructor that was full of all the buttons and small pendants I left behind. Ah, its good to see them again. I’m going to pick out what I want for myself, and then I’ll put the rest up for sale. It is fun to see these old buttons as I can tell I’m already changing some of my techniques on the buttons I’ve been making in the last few days.
I’ll post here when I put them in my etsy shop and if you sent me an email for my mailing list, I’ll give you the heads up first.
Happy weekend everyone. Hit the farmer’s market, buy yourself some blueberries or raspberries and make yourself a buckle cake. I made one last night and it was delicious!!
