Although I'm still not sold on these buttons. Since this is an older chart, I was thinking that the buttons it calls for would be hard to find. So I pulled a couple buttons from my stash and tried them out. I thought I could make do, but the problem is the buttons needed for this design are so tiny and not ones that I think I can fudge. I don't know....I may try to order the charted buttons. The Silver Needle usually has a good supply of buttons. Or else I'll just stitch them in. And that's a wooden bell pull from my stash. It was probably meant for another project that I abandoned long ago.
And then that led to me tearing apart all of the stuff that I had neatly (well, not really neatly) stored away in my stitching desk and making a complete disaster out of my office/sewing room. I wasn't in the mood to stitch any WIP's, and none of my kitted-up stuff was making me happy and so all I accomplished was making a huge mess. Then I went downstairs and watched TV.
Did I mention earlier that a dear friend sent me Hands to Work's Spring Violets in the mail? And I'm waiting on a piece of Lavender Bliss Lugana, which should arrive in the mail any day now. Of course I had a lovely piece of it here. Perfect color, perfect size. And when I opened it up, evidently I had cut a big hunk out of it. Funny though, I really don't ever remember using it for anything!
OK....which one of you sneaky stitchers came into my room, found my Lavender Bliss (and believe me, finding anything in here would be a real feat), and cut a 5 X 5 square out of it?? Fess up. You'll feel better about yourself.
