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...
All Buttoned Up
Design by Candie Cooper, copyright DRG
"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.
