A blog about my interests, which include fabric landscapes and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

A meeting of the minds
Every month our little crafting group gets together and exchanges atcs and generally the hostess comes up with a small how-to that we can play with. This month is was my turn to host and I'm sure the ladies arrived with trepidation knowing full well that some of the 'how-tos' I've managed to come up with have been more like 'how NOT to'. Being a last-minute sort of person I left it til last night to come up with what we would do. Luckily the latest CQMagOnline came to my rescue with an excellent article on decorating buttons. I have lots of buttons and lo and behold I even had the rest of the supplies!
We made decoupaged buttons and these are mine...
These will be great sewn onto a crazy quilt piece.
Above are the atcs we exchanged. Last month the theme was 'masks' and the top one on the left was what I did and Sue made the one on the right. This month it was 'artist choice' and Halloween is on everyone's mind I guess. I made the one on the left and Sue did the other two. My efforts this time were quite paltry, but I was under a time restraint and thought I did well to get anything done at all.
A fun day, with a couple of fun-to-be-with friends - what more could I want?
