I've been busy the last few days on a little crochet project. I'm still rippling my heart out on my giant blankie but I fancied a mini project that I could start, and thankfully finish! Oh, I could hardly put it down. My fingers were working overtime on this one.
What is it, you ask? Well.....ok then.....here it is.......
here. I used some left over Rowan wool and a gorgeous Liberty button. Do you love buttons too? They make me feel so happy.
Last night I went out in London and happened to walk past Liberty. It has the BEST haberdashery department I have ever seen and is packed with amazing eye candy of the crafty variety!
I managed to escape with only a few *modest* purchases including this assortment of buttons.
Oh they make my heart leap!
I remember as a child that sorting my mum's button box was the ultimate treat! She had (and still has!) this huge old-fashioned tin full to the brim with interesting buttons. I loved touching them, counting them and looking at all the shapes and colours. They still haven't lost their charm for me!
Anyhoo, I'm desperate for a cuppa to cheer up this dreary day (see the light in the next photo, tsk!!).
See you later!
