Buttons,Flowers,Trees And Brooches


I was very lucky to be given all these old, odd buttons, some of them will be destined for school and some of the large buttons I have used on my flower brooches.
I spent quite a long time just playing with them!

Before I forget I want to thank a few people who very kindly chose me for awards or tags
karen from Contemporary Embroidery, Izabela from Knit and Crochet,Sarah from The Forest Room and Embellisher.
So sorry I have been a bit late!
I am also in the process of making a few more art works which will progress in to stitches.
Hope to bring you more news soon.
Have a good week.x

You can't beat a good rummage through some old buttons, can you? I love your brooches, they are so simple but stylish. x said...

I love your color palette! Right now I have no plans to dye the fleece, I am going to work with natural colors for this project. I am working on dyeing silk right now though, for a different project. When I look at your pieces though, it makes me want to dye everything!

Your trees are beautiful. I like the sketches you did over Easter, they've got real life and atmosphere.

One of the greatest inventions ever had to have been the button! ...I have bowls full of them and could sort and play with the little darlings for hours!
