Coconut Buttons Flowers

My summer flower design. Coconut buttons, linen, satin floss DMC. Sashkin house CrossStitch&Embroidery Sorry, text in blog is russian:) But I think everything is understandable. You can use a Google translator if you like it. Have a good day!

What To Do With Grandma's Buttons

Floozie is too nice a term.  I'm a Buttonholic.  I have tins and jars full but I've found another way to use them.  If you can crochet a chain stitch, you can make this necklace.  Google crocheted necklaces and take your pick of tutorials but I got mine from Rebecca Sower's blog .  Have fun. I am.

Some vintage buttons

Just thought I'd share some vintage buttons from a most recent project. I love the swirly details. And the burnt orange and chocolate colors~ they remind me of Autumn : ) And some, not so vintage. In fact-I believe they're new. But I love the colors too : ) I'm getting ready for Autumn colors~even if they're just in buttons!


Everyone has their favourites! These are mine -
