This year I was on a button kick. One booth had buttons sewn onto cardstock and embellished with stamping. I bought one card that I actually plan to frame and hang in the studio - it's just that pretty.
On the fabric front - I bought a that beautiful red wool from Pendelton.
Second - the pressing - there is all this talk of needing special tools. Half of them I don't know what they are or what they are for. I have a ham and a seam roll (which I need to replace as one lovely dog ate one end), but a dabber? Anything else I have to have to sew this up?
As I was looking at the beautiful red fabric I said to my friend E - it's lovely, but I don't wear red. She just looked at me and laughed. Finally she said, ummm, yea, you do! I was wear the red print skirt with the lovely lining, a red turtleneck, brown tights and red ballet flats. Umm - yea, guess I do.
