For the Love of Buttons

I have collected buttons for many years; Especially, the more unusual ones. Will I ever have a worthy project for them? Who knows. Today, I did.

Today, I finished knitting a pillow cover, but it needed something. A flower, some leaves, what? As I looked about my Studio, not the most tidy, I spotted a string of lonely buttons. A memory jerker……I had purchased them at a knitting/ textile show from a young couple. He a potter, she a spinner and their baby sleeping in the baby carriage, tucked away in their booth. There was no line up at their booth. Their work was very artistic, the sock knitters weren’t interested. She spins beads and other objects into her yarn.

I purchased some yarn and the green pottery clay buttons.
