I went to a FABULOUS talk on buttons tonight. Jenny Swindell talked about their history, how they were made and what materials they were made from, their evolution and for some, their symbolism. Seeing Jenny's collection of hundreds of buttons was wonderful, so decorative and some were teeny tiny. I know a talk on buttons isn't very rock and roll but just look at these pretties, so gorgeous!
Have you been watching the The Great British Sewing Bee? I have and it has inspired me to get sewing again. Dawn over at Pop-i-cok was only saying last week that she used to sew loads, I used to too. I didn't fall out of love with it because of a terrible experience like Dawn (so sorry to hear about what happened Dawn - terrible for you) but I just kinda lost my sewing mojo. I had a fab time getting fabrics out and have been fiddling about. Such fun!
