Buttony bits and bobs
Today I had a little revelation about Blogtoberfest. Basically, someone who is always late with her tax, takes a week to reply to an email, decides what to wear on the morning of and never puts the vegemite back in the same spot in the fridge, should not ever think that she can commit to daily blog posts.
Rather than feel like a failure, I have decided to embrace the gesture of Blogtoberfest and aim to blog more than I ever have before in a given month, reducing the requirements down from 31 to 17 which feels remotely achievable. I would much rather do my usual wordier post every few days than conform and do something that is just not me.
The sewing project is on track, thanks to a lucky button find at the $2 shop. All I wanted were plain red buttons ( Spotlight was not coming to the party), but isn't this a lovely little collection? Oh, yes in an ode to vintage sheet of the day (which also went by the wayside) they are displayed on a lovely tablecloth from the motherload stash.
This little crochet cushion number is coming along slowly but surely.
And this was a little pile from a few weeks ago before the farm jaunt. I just love the lilacs and greens in that blankie.
And lastly, in an exciting turn of events, miss Liongirl has suddenly progressed from producing meaningless scribble that she talks up as the next Monet, to elaborate family portraits. She seemed a little unsure as to whether the additional members are pets or grandparents.
