When we think of the past it’s the beautiful things we pick out. We want to believe it was all like that.

This project proved to be very time-consuming! But I do like the finished result.

Pincushion August 2014 (2)Pincushion August 2014

The fabric is Patchwork Dove which I found on e-bay and the buttons are from my (rather large) collection.

I love buttons and have LOADS of them including my Mother’s button tin which I remember playing with as a very young child, not yet school age, sorting them by colour – or size – or shape – or all three! I had hours of fun with that simple task and I suspect my Mother gave me the tin just to keep me quiet while she did her chores!
