There's a bit of a backstory to my first finish. A couple of months ago, you may recall, I attended a conference in Canmore with my whole staff. While I was there, I saw these awesome boots in a shoe store:
I was chatting with one of my colleagues, Sue, in the shoe shop about how much I loved the buttons on these boots. The next week, when we were back at work, she brought me this book:
She said she had bought it a while back as a gift for someone but it had never made it to the intended recipient. So she gave it to me!.
It has wonderful stories and sayings about buttons along with pictures of some of the most beautiful buttons I have ever seen. This was my favourite (of course):
As a little (belated) thank you, I made Sue a Button Tree:
It is 6 3/4" x 8 1/2" - a little fabric card or tiny wall hanging. I hope she likes it.
I've also made some progress on the OnlyChild's Christmas ornament. I didn't have any time to work on it since last weekend so now I'm finding myself pressed for time to get it finished. Well, I have a week, but I know it's going to be a busy few days at work until we finish for the Christmas break.
The OnlyChild got home last night around 9:30 pm. She is so happy to be sleeping in her own bed with AbbyDog snuggled up beside her!
We're making our preparations for Paris in 10 days. She is so excited!
And so am I.
