Getting Ready

Hello!!!  It's been a long time!  So sorry for being away for such a long time.  Life has been crazy!  I live in Buda, work in Austin and I started a fitness class in Lockhart that meets three evenings a week so I have been on the road  a lot!  Add getting ready for a couple of May craft markets into that and I am busy!!!  I am happy to say that today is the first day of a four day weekend for me so I have lots of blogs to catch up on in the next few days.  :-)


Let's get started!


This weekend I made another batch of fabric button jewelry to take to May markets.


I went to B&B Quilting and found some pretty new fabrics









and then I got to work! 

This is what a piece of fabric looks like after I finish cutting it up for buttons.



There isn't much left!


These are the finished pieces!


Small Button Rings



Large Button Rings



Necklaces



I realized after I finished the necklaces that I completely left out one piece of fabric so I ordered a few more buttons that should be here early next week.  I'll post pictures when they are finished.

I'm so behind on my blog reading since I've been so busy!  Have you posted any projects that you are really proud of?  Leave a comment with the link so I can be sure to read it.  I love finding inspiration from my amazingly talented blog friends.  :-)

Do you still have the butterfly and flower with the yellow background? I love that one...and the ladybug...and others, but do you have the butterfly?

Hey Cassie! Are you talking about the little orange butterfly with the flowers in the bottom right corner of the picture? I do still have it. I have the ladybug, too! :)
