A Good Evening...

was had by all at the Health Farm. Lots of yummy healthy food, oh and delicious desert too! Then after dinner SILJ asked about buttons and well The Mother was in a sharing mood, so we got to play with these lovelies and take some samples home of course. SILJ was looking for yellow and orange buttons for a project she is working on. I didn't get a before photo so most of the yellow ones are gone. Unfortunately The Mother did not have orange in her collection, maybe she shared with another family member already. We enjoyed finding interesting buttons among this lot for atleast an hour - Miss10 and Mr8 joined in and were very helpful cutting old threads off the buttons which had enjoyed a previous life!
Ooh... then The Mother produced these lovelies all of which are more than a metre in length. She finds all the good stuff for me at the Oppy where she voluteers weekly.
Oh, to have connections in all the right places.
Hope the sun is shining where you are.
Happy Crafting
