Yarn along craftiness...and a final day for a giveaway!

Right now I'm in the homestretch of so many projects...
Like my t-shirt yarn mat/rug...
or my Oaklet Shawl...
or a baby vest  for the little premature baby my friend just had...

I've been reading like crazy...
the new curriculum I got in this week...
or the books I got from the library...about knitting...the Opinionated Knitter is a must read!
or research for our "Ancient Egyptian Times" newspaper...
or a fun book like the Dinopedia

I'm working on a tutorial for T-shirt new love.

And I've been creating like crazy...
buttons and more buttons...
Each piece of wood seems to be talking to me...
dye me with blueberries...
carve a little more off the rim...
but not too much...
I deserve to be a toggle, not a mini button...

  1. such beautiful projects and I love those buttons!!

  2. Wow. I'm exhausted reading about everything you are working on and reading! I think I might need to go back to bed... :)
    I love your buttons! I had a notion (see what I did there?) about making buttons last year, when we lost a lot of branches from an early snowstorm. I held on to the branches for quite a while but ended up leaving them behind when we moved; I never did get around to it. I think a nature/branch collecting walk in the park may be in order one of these days. In the meantime I will just ogle your beautiful buttons. (I like the toggles the best!) xo

  3. The buttons are so beautiful! I would love the 7/8 inch applewood buttons with bark. Thanks for the chance :-)

  4. Oh my, you have been busy,busy, busy! Button making is addictive isn't it? Yours are so very pretty and the best of luck with your shop.
    I am very curious about teeshirt yarn and am looking forward to hearing more about it.

  5. Cute little buttons! Best of luck with your etsy store. I linked to here on my current post of my free baby sweater vest pattern, in the section on buttons. Blessings!

  6. I can't wait to see all of your FOs! I would also really use that t-shirt yarn tutorial...I have a pile of old shirts that need to have something done to them - this sounds perfect!

    I love all of your buttons! My favorites are the two medium buttons without the bark. Lovely. Thanks for the opportunity! :)

  7. Ooo woodsy buttons. Those just might come in handy! and is that t-shirt knitting I see?

  8. these buttons are really nice! i love the most when you can see the bark, so i think my favorites in your store are the small set of applewood buttons. but i do like large wood buttons too!

  9. Wow, you have so much going on, love it!! Your buttons are lovely and the t-shirt yarn, sounds interesting.

  10. I am just like you! Too many projects all at once ;) Those buttons are so sweet!!

  11. Such lovely yarns you've got on the go there. Button making is a blast, isn't it? And I've got a garbage bag full of old t-shirts waiting to be turned into yarn.


Thanks for visiting with us girls...put your feet up and stay for a while.
