Tag Archives: Buttons
Have you entered the book giveaway? It closes on Friday. Don’t miss out.
Today master 4 and I played ‘Button Shop’.
We laid out all the special buttons and they were the shop then we used some of the boring buttons for money.
We had such fun buying and describing the buttons we wanted.
It was sweet time for us together playing while Master 1 had a sleep.
I have also completed Challenge 53 – a photo to a special aunty far away who needs to know we think of her often.
Tonight I HAVE to finish a project for another wonderful friend and then I can get some serious posting done tomorrow.
Today I got my new recipe book in the post – loving Sophie (as I do) I’m sure this will be a winner.
Also this week I have lots of sweet treats to make for a special family celebration on the weekend. I’m always thrilled when I get the calorie section of the catering to work on. So much fun. I’m not going to write the list of what I’m making or I’ll probably get told to scale it back. I’ll just keep you informed as I make – too late then!

Today is a celebration of things pretty – fabric and buttons.
I have decided, with a little guidance, to collect buttons. Challenge 45 required me to start collecting something I loved. I have something of a skill for the accumulation of things and whilst there was competition from cake stands and little jugs I have settled on buttons. The lovely thing about buttons is I can use them on things as well. I started the official collection by purchasing 2 wooden buttons featuring maple leaves.
I’ll still have open arms for cake stands and jugs but right now ‘I collect buttons!’ Just like that.
Yesterday I made the ‘Seared Beef with Mustard Crust’ which was a little seared and not quite brown enough for this mama and her family so it got a little extra cooking – sorry Sophie! It was a lovely meal though and in attendance some special family members – always a treat to eat with others and something we don’t do enough.
I also made another batch of homemade ice-cream and the ‘Ganache’ which we used, and shared, as a chocolate fondue with bananas and marshmallows. Delicious!
My quote of the week comes from Master 3 who was eating homemade yoghurt the other day and said ‘It makes me smile in my mouth’. I think he’s growing up for a career in food writing!
Tonight I am seriously committed to making some real inroads on the charity quilt – it must be done!

Today I completed Challenge 50 to put a love note in my husbands lunchbox. In our case it is a lunch bag. He should of course get these very day because he is such a darling.
Master 1 also discovered he is a dab hand with mascara. It came off but he really had the wand movement down!
Also the wearing of the ring has commenced. I sewed it to invisible elastic. I like it!

Today I did the button challenge. Challenge 85. Whilst I will commence wearing it tomorrow I am marking it off because button 2 will be winging its way to a creative type. As you can see I chose a few buttons. It was quite blissful to go into a fabric shop with the express purpose of browsing in the button section. Truthfully I could have spent $100 easily on lovely buttons but I settled for the 4 you see. There was only one of the big flowered button or that would have been flying through the mail. So I am going to send the little green one instead. I love the colour, the simplicity of the design, the fact it is so small.
That means tonight I am off to devise a way to include said button into my attire for the week. I have some thoughts but you’ll be the first to know.
I was given a beautiful pinky-purply (let’s call it magenta from my list!) cyclamen today as well. So the creative joy keeps flowing about.
