Been messing around again....I rather like this one. It took ages to sew on those buttons as I'm no needle woman but looks so much better than just sticking.


Bought a pile of old Pennies in a reclamation yard....

and found my old sew in name tags from school ! The silk I painted at a craft weekend I go to with friends. I added salt to get the speckled effect. That's Anglesey sea salt in the bag too and part of a label from my favourite brand of clothes. I think it would look better without the Penny now.

  5. Your button vineyard piece is one of my favorites of yours. Those button flowers are just so unique! I agree sewing them on is better than gluing (glue coming up through the button's holes is not very esthetically pleasing!)
