and 28 Buttons Later...

...I still want to make more.

This whole button thing started with me wanting to make the Prettified Pincusions from Ayumi's book Patchwork, Please in which you can use fabric covered buttons. Well the pincushion was temporarily abandoned last evening for a trip to the store to get more buttons to cover.

My husband actually asked what I needed all of them for. I said I needed them for pincushions. He asked how many pincushions are you going to make. I said maybe 2. Then he looked at all my buttons and laughed a little. He's stopping by the store today for a few odds and ends. I asked him to pick me up some more buttons to cover. hehe.

There are worse things. I imagine you endearing. :-)

I remember what I was planning to use all my buttons for when I purchase my buttons years ago. Magnets! I was think to remove the hook from the back and hot glue gun in magnets. Maybe I will revive that.i have all the supplies, still...

I love your buttons and your post made me laugh. (My husband just smiles and shakes his head at some of my antics.)
I use to cross stitch small Christmas designs to cover the bigger buttons and crochet lace around them, attach a thin cord and make into Christmas ornaments.
