Buttons and a book

Standard

After a full on day of planning it was nice to have a bit more of a chilled out day yesterday. I went net curtain shopping with Mum (fun times!) then we headed to Monk’s Yard for coffee and lemon drizzle cake – yum! I then spent the afternoon working on my button order whilst catching up with The Big Bang Theory. I needed to push the backs of some of the buttons on more firmly, so spent a while doing that, until my hands got too sore! The teeny tiny buttons may look cute, but they sure dig in when you press on them!

 

But I now have 47 fully finished buttons, plus 12 more waiting to have the backs pushed on (I’ll wait a couple of days before I try this again!)

 

I also have a nice little pile of 12 circles with buttons sewn on ready to be made up.

As well as buttons I’ve started another crochet project. I can’t show you yet what it is, as it’s a present for a friend, but here’s a little peek at the crochet goodness…

And finally, do you remember that I entered a couple of giveaways on Thursday? (It was something to do in between planning lessons!) Well, I actually won one! I’ve never won a giveaway before and I’m super excited 🙂 The lovely Hannah over at not your average crochet is sending me this book.

I’ve not heard of this author before, so I have no idea what these books are about, but Hannah loves them and thinks they closely rival Harry Potter – so they must be good! I’ll let you know what I think wen I’ve started reading.

Enjoy your weekend everyone 🙂
