No Matching Buttons...

Sigh….I have two bags of buttons—one rather large bag which is a combination of bags from Zellers and Walmart plus some random buttons:



The other, a bag of shall we call them ‘antique’ buttons, though they’re more just thrifted buttons:


There are buttons of all colors in here, yet there are no matching buttons! I find a button that would be just perfect to go with the project I’m working on:

And, then find out I can find no matching button. I find another that would work, and still….no matching button! Maybe I should organize them by color or something to make them easier to wade through, though that seems like quite the task. Or, I could go out and buy a bunch of packs of matching buttons, and keep them separate. Or, I could resort to fabric covered buttons…I have a couple lying around, but have not yet had the inspiration to use them. Maybe this is the push I need to do so….

Welcome!!!

Hello and Welcome!
I've been wanting to do this for some time now--set up a blog and share some of my 'creations' with you all. I have to admit I've been on a sewing binge the last month or so--trying to get enough items for a table at the upcoming Craft and Bake sale here in Calmar on the 3rd of December. The deadline for a table is the 15th, and I wanted to make sure I had a decent number of things ready by then--just in case things get busy the next couple of weeks--and sure enough I have gotten a lot done!


Rag Blankets


Peasant Tops



Bibs



And a couple of surprises....:)

I'm quite excited about this as it'll be my first time to attend a craft sale with my 'stuff.' We'll see how things go and if it'll be worthwhile to attend more of these sales!
