How mad is that? and to use the old cliche - it doesn't feel like a year.
So, to start my second blogging, crafty year I finally got round to starting my 'Thing-a-Day' challenge.
Inspired by Jodie I decided to make some of my own button rings.
I threaded some craft wire through the beads, then through the buttons. I then twisted the wire tightly at the back and pressed it down flat and hot glued them onto the ring bases.
You can't really see the colours that well but the bottom one is orange with orange beads and the top one has a dark blue button. I think my favorite is the big red one.
The boy's have embraced their 'Thing-a-day' challenge and this is what I found on Saturday morning.
Inspired by my new found enjoyment of embroidery and a cool post on Craft Chi I tidied up the flosses and threads (that sounds like a good name for a craft shop, must remember that if I ever open one) that I have acquired.
and of course as soon as I get my camera out a cat turns up to try and get in the photo!
