I have spent the day going through the antique button collection, sorting out which ones I want to use in my weekend tatting.
This is my selection:
Aren't these carved shell buttons beautiful?!? They will be put on the inspiration tray along with various Swarovskis, seed beads, pearls and Valdani threads. I use a velvet lined tray to keep my project materials arrayed for work. It is pretty and keeps everything neat and organized.
I have a number of works to finish this weekend and hope to make more progress on the purse project. Perhaps I'll have something interesting to show you Monday!
Well, I am off to get the rest of what I need gathered up in the Atelier. After that I plan to spend the evening tatting and watching a few episodes of Grimm on the DVR. Have a wonderful "Superbowl" weekend and don't forget to leave comments on Tuesday's "Be My Valentine" event post and/or any of the Facebook postings I did on the event. That way you have multiple chances of winning one of the 3 prizes! Until next week~
