Fabulous Fabric..and fabulous buttons..for fabulous Tuesday!

Inspired by Alice and Ginny's wonderful book, and as it was my turn to organise our craft get together today, what better than to decorate a plain , cotton bag!!

(You can always tell my efforts as I love bright reds and pinks)

We need another week at these and hopefully the finished products will be featured here next Tuesday!!

(I just hope that we don't all go out shopping together, as we'll look like some sort of secret clan!)

What's more, now we are four ! If word gets around I will need to hire a hall..LOL!

Thank you Alice and Ginny..it's a fab book, admired by all today.

Talking of fab crafty things, recently,I discovered the most gorgeous packs of buttons!!

Finally, just to say that Nich has left Amsterdam behind and is now in Berlin.

'The sobbing woman of the house', (as I am now nicknamed) , is as well as can be expected.

Those are pretty . I bet that once plain bag looks like something really special now you've added those fabric flowers.

Buttons are pretty too but I have a huge button box so had better not buy anymore!

Love those flowers. Might have to add that book to my wish list. Where did you buy the buttons from? They're lovely colours.

Of course I LOVE the buttons, your fabric flowers are sooooooo pretty. I think you are being very brave, I still miss Twiglet when he's at nursery for 2 half day sessions, so goodness knows how I'd feel. Keep your pecker up, your son sounds like a very thoughtful young man, well done you!
