Jocie and I had a wonderful "girl's day" today! We popped over to Hobby Lobby, then visited one of the local quilt shops, & finally engaged in some bargain shopping at the dollar stores. I treasure special one-on-one time with my teenaged daughter. She will be grown and on her own before I know it.
After returning home, I discovered the package UPS left at the door- it was our Lee Valley order. Jim had ordered some special drawer pulls for his woodcarving bench and I ordered some watchmaker tins for storing my Czech art glass buttons and Swarovskis. Here is an image of the Czech buttons, neatly organized:
This is the way to store buttons! These tins come in their own hinged-lid aluminum case. If you'd like to order some, click on this link.
I got a little bit of tatting done this weekend, but not much. Pictured below is an image of a St. Pat's button brooch work-in-progress:
I've tatted more than what is imaged, but don't want to show too much of it as my Mom really loves this button and has hinted that a tatted goody made with one of these "green beauties" would be appreciated. If it turns out nicely, she'll probably get her wish.
Well, Jocie and I are ready for our chick-flick & chocolate. Have a wonderful day! Until tomorrow~
