thought I'd disappeared did you...



This has been a real busy week for me. A lot of


work to get done, both at my day job and for


"faire wings and pixie dust"


I needed to do a little of this and a whole lot of everything else. As you can see I've got a little show and tell with what has been keeping me busy.
Embroidered
set of 5 lace buttons in pink. Just larger than a quarter. Since we have those CPSIA laws going into effect I needed to find something to replace the buttons. I thought this was a start but I really need to find some that are a little smaller. I found them at a great wedsite called, www.cuteembroidey.com. In making my Princesses in Pink Pillowcase top and diaper cover I got a chance to use them. The above outfit is a 24 mth old size and can be worn year round.
Now to think what I'm going to do with all those lovely buttons that I have collected for years and I do mean years. Some my mother gave me from clothing that I remember her wearing as I was growing up. Talk about recycling, they knew what it meant to use everything again and again.
Well I need to get dressed for another action packed day at work. Oh, like I haven't already gotten started on my next project this morning.
Just wanted to stay in touch...Ya'll have a good day.

I've been reading alittle about those new CPSIA laws on etsy, what a lousy deal for you! I don't know what I would do if I couldn't use buttons! I'll just stick to sewing for my new grandchild and hope they don't sue me!! Cute crocheted buttons!
