....and you will receive!
(mainly because I have nothing else!!)
A couple of people have asked to see my button collection so here you go....
I received this wonderful hand-made magpie for Christmas and needed a place to put him/her. Getting rid of four of my button jars gave me just enough space to display my magpie. A win/win!
- If you know someone who is expecting a wee one, perhaps she might like one of THESE.
- THESE are rather cute to make for your Valentine.
- The embroidery pieces shown HERE are quite interesting (be sure to scroll down). THESE aren't embroidered, but certainly fun.
- THIS is beautiful embroidery!
- THIS is a really nice slipper pattern (perhaps make several pairs and put them in the Christmas box for next year?)
Another quote from an anonymous source.."Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around"
Wonderful button collection, my dear.ReplyDelete
Hi Mary Anne wow thats a lot of buttons,your magpie looks fantastic there xxReplyDelete
The buttons are cool but that magpie is AWESOME!!!!ReplyDelete
Buttons galore! You sure beat me in the button collecting. Very nice magpie gift you received. I like the embroidery links. ThanksReplyDelete
You tease . . . we need a panoramic shot of the button wall. LOVE the magpie!! What a sweet gift! I pinned the heart sachet pattern - very cute! Those embroidered pieces . .. oh my goodness!! What works of art! Thanks for sharing all of your links and contributing to my growing desire to get back to stitching of some kind.ReplyDelete
Your button collection is impressive. Did you make Elron? He's the best!!ReplyDelete
Gee Elyron, we are just looking - honest! No thought of getting closer! Keep that magpie on its best behaviour!ReplyDelete
You Sweet Mary Anne are button wealthy! How delightful to have them displayed where you can enjoy them. Elyron is a magical mascot and I do hope he makes good friends with Magpie. You have shared some amazing embroidery links. I am in awe. Happy Valentine’s Dear...xoReplyDelete
Thanks for that view of your workroom/button collection.ReplyDelete
And I enjoyed the different embroidery links. The 'lichen and moss' stitches
Jars of pretty buttons all in a row. There is something terribly satisfying seeing a row of colourful buttons all together. Elyron is very cool and the magpie is a handsome fellow. The thought "birds of a feather flock together" comes to mind.....=)ReplyDelete
Elyron is gorgeous! Did you make him?ReplyDelete
Love the magpie too!
Your button stash is awesome and to think it was even bigger before the Magpie came, they all look so attractive and of course, the bird is the icing on the cake!ReplyDelete
Somehow I missed this post! And I was one who asked for a picture. lol Your line-up of button jars is so cheery. And I love the Magpie. And Elyron! He (I assume it's a he) is an interesting sewing room guardian.ReplyDelete
oh my goodness...button envy. I do love your magpie too...he's very classy. (just like you lol)ReplyDelete
