Before shooting off to work this morning I had a couple of hours to myself so I got out the materials and the patterns for the bags that I want to make in the next couple of days and started to snip away.
The first photo you see today is a selection of the treasures in my bargain buy of the car boot at the weekend. A bag of miscallaneous sewing items for one euro. In there were some nylon threads, some cottons, some wools, some hook and eyes, some mohair sewing thread, some elastic, some ribbon, some bias trim and of course some buttons.
Not that I am button obsessed you know - after all - doesn't everyone have a kitchen drawer packed to the gills with buttons?
