That's right Joanna, are you following or actually doing it?  I quite fancy doing something like that,  do you know how to start a button?

I'll try that again!

No I haven't really got the time to do it. I have enough projects in my head to keep me going, should I get the incentive and time. I have just finished off my daughters cushions last night and I started them in June (made me realise writing this that I have packaged up the cushion covers without taking a photo doh). Some of the buttons seem to be based on needleweaving with small hoops and others I think use a pre-made base.

I have a small hand-embroidered brooch which is made from a curtain ring, perhaps I shall try to do that.

I hope you manage to get a picture of the covers eventually, it's good to have record of anything you've made.

What time do you land tomorrow?

I'll try that again!

Good idea to see them with the cushions.

Have an uneventful journey back to UK tomorrow, take a deep breath before joining any roads.

I'll try that again!
