All Buttoned Up…

How ironic that the project I’m about to show you is titled, “all buttoned up”.  I WISH I had this move all buttoned up, lol.  Actually things are going along pretty well (knock on wood).  I’m making jewelry today and will continue packing tonight.  Katie dropped a line this morning to tell me a project of mine was on the Simply Beads Magazine website.  That was a nice surprise.  It’s one of my favs…

“Combine pretty vintage or vintage-inspired fabrics and some beads to make charming buttons. Simply stitch them in place for a custom-made addition to purchased garments, purses and more. You can also snip the button shank from the back with wire cutters and replace with a tie-tack finding for a unique pin.”

You can download the project here. 

Thank you for all the comments and emails of well wishes for our move home.  I can’t imagine what this will be like going from a town of 9 million to 12,000, except for…..interesting.
