Inside there's a family history told in buttons - from my Grandpa's shirts and Nannie's dresses, through to my Mum's blouses, and my school cardigans. (Mine were navy blue, what colour were yours?!) It's a little treasure chest that still gives me a thrill when I delve down deep, hoping to unearth a special button. The only trouble is, they're mostly a bit on the dull side. Take a peek inside..............
I'm hoping to make a quick crochet project in the next week or so, taking inspiration from Lucy at Attic 24 to make a flower brooch. I have the yarn all ready and waiting, left over from my Debbie Bliss Christmas tree square,
so I decided to treat myself to some new buttons. I remembered a stand that I'd seen both at Ally Pally and I Knit, where I'd been very tempted to buy lots of brightly coloured buttons. I unearthed the card I'd picked up, and hey presto, before I knew it, I'd bought not only a wonderful selection of buttons, but also some brooch pins. I got them from Knitting4Fun, and I have to say that the service was excellent. Ordered yesterday, arrived today! Just feast your eyes on all this lovely buttony goodness!
The weather forecast for tomorrow isn't that good, so if we have a snow day, you can guess what I'll be doing!
Edited to add: I've just found the perfect tin for my 'new' button box. I'll share it with you next time!
