I finally bit the bullet yesterday and bought some buttons to truly complete my finished objects. I hate sewing things up, so I’ve only done one item so far, 2 more to go.
This yarn is from Starfish, she was my pal in the Favourite Colour swap I did in the middle of the year. I found the perfect button to match, please don’t look too closely at the seaming at the shoulder.
Most major intersections in our area have people who brave the traffic to sell items. I love driving through and seeing what they have. Items for sale range from beautiful roses, cases of fruit, whips made from recycled tires, hats, bags, sunglasses, and mobile phone chargers. But my favourite stuff is the craft. They sell a variety of beaded items and I’m getting a nice collection of flowers in my office, they also have tractors made out of wood and tin which I have my eye on.
I bought my Christmas tree on Sunday, from a guy on the side of the road.
It sits on a box in the corner of our living room, with presents underneath. It’s not very big, but I like it a lot. All of the decorations are wired on, the craftspersonship is superb, and I smile every time I look at it.
