My family can be quite interesting sometimes. My mother has now made it public that she's holding my buttons hostage. Buttons are things to be taken very seriously. Yesterday, when I was avoiding sewing zippers, I felt like making it clear that we're not talking about buttons in general but Buttons that are too pretty to be used and that make me feel like a princess. I don't care about diamonds, I just need buttons. Obviously I couldn't take pictures of the buttons held hostage, so I took pictures of my existing treasures. (I should have skipped eating dinner, now the last pictures on the left taken after dinner are much darker than the others...)
I did manage to sew the zippers in the end. New linen pouches will eventually end up in the shop & blog. Now I need to go cut some cover boards.... that means that new books are in the making too.
Thanks to all of you who popped in to read Karen's interview! I hope we'll be seeing each others later!
