loose ends

March 24, 2012

today was the last of my button workshops, for a while



the different ideas just keep amazing me, I feel like I’m learning more than the students

buttons from a class at “the Castle”







Lauren’s black, white, red button is a tiny work of art








at “tea and tell” Arlene brought her woven linen tea towels to show us what the linen looks like before  (bottom) and after washing

the final step in the beginner’s weaving class is twisted fringes

and because I needed to do something crazy and Spring-ish, I’m painting my old canvas runners




a work in progress





I’m wondering if the grandchildren will want to be seen with me??

    that’s what is fun with little projects, you can experiment and actually finish it. these buttons look fun, so do the shoes! i find kookiness is a desirable trait, and that cookies soothe most ruffled feathers.

      oh yes, I need more projects I can finish. I am discovering that the older one gets the more need there is for kookiness and cookies!

    Your runners are fabulous! And those buttons give me ideas, as if I didn’t have enough to do! Must get the wee gifties in the mail TOMORROW!
