B is for Button. This is a cute one, as I am fond of buttons. Plus I have started the border of the surrounding ones as I will go round. My MOTH had a chuckle as he also noticed I am a friend of the Victorian Button Collectors on Face Book. They have a brilliant display. I recall playing in the Nana’s button box as a child. We would choose our favourite and substitute it for the playing pieces on the Monopoly Board.
Memories – gotta love them, makes me all warm and fuzzy on the inside.
Please click on the links below and see the wonderful crafts everyone else is working on. If there’s no post up yet, try again later, as we’re all n different time zones, and postings occur at random every 3 weeks on the day planned. This week, we’re welcoming Clare, a new member of the SAL. I am sure you will find her blog crafty and entertaining.
Another project on the go – LOL. This one is a lot of fun and while I have made loads of progress in the first 3 weeks, don’t hold me to that schedule. A few of the letters are large/stitch intense. Here is the letter A. I wonder what other craft items you can add to the list for A is for applique – can you add to the list …
We have many talented Stitcher’s in this SAL. Please pop over to my fellow bloggers you you will be delighted with their colourful talented efforts.
I hope my neighbours heard/felt my happy dance with the completion of this project. Its been a long time in the making. My friends Bubba is now 5.5kg, smiling and both Mum & Bub recovering well after a rough greeting into the world. Now I need to get the machine out and finish this wall hanging! I am giving myself an achievable deadline – 3 weeks and the next post in this SAL.
Now onto my original stitchery, Save the Stitches. When I can locate where I filed it amongst the WIPS etc it will turn up. In the meant time I have chosen another project.
Please hop over to my fellow bloggers you you will be delighted with their colourful talented efforts.
I am struggling to complete this project. My motivation lacking in so many ways. I the home front the kitchen is slowly progressing, and I have an oven yeah! Still need to paint and do the floors. A few more stars and back stitch these past weeks. Slow and steady, on this tiny project.
Please pop over to the see the inspiring works of art by my fellow SALers. Thelinks are below.
I am curious? Are there any of my fellow craft bloggers or your family/friends who are members of Toastmasters?
Toastmasters, for those not familiar is a public speaking club and not about cooking your bread to perfection and slathering it with butter. (Insert yummy buttery toasty smile topped with Jam – here).
We also have on-line clubs for those who have difficulty getting out and wish to make that vital connection around the globe. I am a member of 2 online clubs and one land based or as we refer to it Bricks and Mortar club. If you are interested in checking out an online Toastmasters club and seeking what I consider the most inexpensive form of education. We meet weekly in the “cloud” traversing the globe from varied locations.
Sadly no progress at all for either of my SAL’s – many reasons. The main on pre-occupied with a kitchen renovation, which will take a few more weeks. However the bulk of heavy work completed by my brother with the MOTH’s assistance. However you will be delighted with the progress by the other highly industrious members of the SAL. The boys have nearly gutted the kitchen, ripped up the old lino, and the floor boards should polish up nicely. Bench top sin and plaster dust everywhere. Still need to have electrician, plasterer and painting completed. Plus a new window. Perhaps 4 more weeks of chaos but main section is moving along well. Flat packs taken over the lounge, passage etc are almost all in their new homes.
Fingers crossed the next 3 weeks are more productive.
