I think I have button OCD. I have just colour coded my buttons. Is that wrong? I had to find a use for that spice rack I bought at the flea market so I just couldn't resist. I'm not usually like this. I'm usually quite messy and not OCD at all. Anyway what do you think? Cute or slightly mental?? Be honest I can take it!!
I also realised that I actually have quite a lot of buttons and don't really need to buy any buttons ever again. Need to look on Pinterest for some button projects for the Pinterest Challenge. (Don't forget it opens again on 5 March on Melksham Mums blog here)
I blame my sudden button tidying compulsion on receiving this gorgeous box of goodies from Pur-ple. Its so lovely. I featured it on my Christmas gift ideas list but didn't get it so decided to treat myself! Izzy has already helped herself to one of everything!
I also bought some lovely little embroidery hoops for some pictures I want to make for an arts trail event I am doing. I really do need to get off the computer and make something. Ah now I understand the button tidying. Its a distraction from actually sitting down and making something. It all makes sense now!
Another gorgeous bunch of dresses arrived this week
3 beautiful dresses from Kelly
A lovely dress from Kath at Sew La La. Check out her gorgeous fabric website for beautiful and very reasonably priced vintage looking floral fabrics. You won't be able to leave without buying something!
4 beautiful and vibrant dresses from Caroline who has a facebook page here
6 more lovely dresses from the very kind Patricia
and another batch of dresses from the very generous Pat who also very kindly photographs her dresses for me and emails me when they are on their way. You will see why this is so helpful when you read below...
So I have a small confession to make. I had lovingly laid out all the dresses in piles ready to photograph with the notes and cards from the makers on top so I didn't get mixed up only they got moved by unnamed members of my family and I got a bit confused!! I think I have got the dresses matched to the correct people but please forgive me if not! What was really lovely is that I could match individual dresses to the same maker by looking at the seams and the way they were made. This made me smile for some reason. I love that each person makes things slightly differently and I that I could identify dresses from that.
Total is now 911 dresses but I have a BIG batch of dresses waiting to be photographed and lots more parcels arrived today. Its very exciting. 1000 here we come.
