I have a very large collection of vintage buttons. I have picked them up at yard sales over the years and after my most recent move I decided it was time I culled the herd. So I opened an Etsy shop!
I had already sorted many of them by color so that they could be displayed in my home, but some collections are just so large they need to be sorted into multiple lots. And of course I have pick out the sets I'm holding on to. Here are some pictures of my gold buttons, mid-sort.
I knew it had been a while since my last post, but THREE MONTHS!? I was astounded.
I do have some fairly good excuses. The main on is that since I completed that shawl from SXSW, I basically put my needles down until just recently. And why did I do that? Well, because I moved. And moving takes all of your time. Hunting for apartments, packing, applying for apartments, moving, unpacking. We moved in the middle of May and I am still surrounded by boxes.
But the dust has settled enough for me to get clicking again.
I wanted to get back to basics, so I grabbed some deliciously soft yarn (Alchemy Haiku) and knit up a little garter stitch scarf.
