What began as a simple task of sewing on a button turned into a rainy day project.
Where did I put my needles and thread? It is in the laundry room somewhere hiding (we've been in the new house a year and I apparently haven't had the need to use either), so my search began. Bingo...they were hiding in a box on the bottom shelf of the closet (next to the un-used sewing machine), along with dozens of buttons, none of which I needed for this particular project, but which seemed to call my name to sort, throw away or whatever! So I did.
I found buttons of all types, sizes and colors; spare buttons for long-gone whatevers--blouses, skirts, dresses. Some brought back fond memories of a particular outfit; others, I was clueless as to what they were supposed to adorn. I found buttons that will be perfect to use in some of my card making, you know, stamp a flower and use a button as its center. Cutsey things like that.
The buttons are now in a pretty glass jar, sitting on my craft table...still calling my name, saying 'come find a new use for me!'
Enjoy your Friday. I sure will; I'm going to play for awhile.
