Class, Gifts



Embellisher Club was yesterday and was great fun. We made buttons-here are mine. Now I need to make more and use braids and beads on them. They are quick and a good way to try color combinations. Now I need to make something to use them on.



Isn't this roving luscious? My friend Catherine gave it to me. It will be a purse which is the next Club project. Now I need to find trims to go with it. I'm sure there are plenty in my stash as these colors are ones I love.



My friend Lois gave me these napkins to use in the Ratty Tatty Papers class from www.thethreadstudio.com I'm getting a nice stash.This cottage scene begs to be turned into a piece, and the rooster is great-a reminder of the one we lost to the hawk several weeks ago.I am so lucky to have such good friends.

Loooove the buttons! And yes, the roving is to die for. Great stash of napkins you are collecting. I think I have the one with the cardinal someplace.

The napkin exchange has worked really well - some great ones. How about turning some of the buttons into brooches?
