A Dorset Button

12th August 2014

I have had a lovely day.....

......the wind broke one of my agapanthus so I pressed the flowers....


.....hope they retain their beautiful colour!

I have been sorting and moving up into my loft work space-it's going to take a while-when I found cards I just couldn't recycle.......


....the card on the far left was from Jo (Thoughtful threads) free machining on her silk paper using her new machine....

...the top of the book shelf is for my dried seed heads, grasses and small treasures!

I also put some of my work on the wall....


....my free machined cow parsley and work/sketch books...

....you can also see some of my lavender bags hanging from the door knobs...


:::::

This afternoon I sat by the window in the sunshine happily making this Dorset Button....




....decorated with french knots....


...this idea came from Stitch magazine, think I will make the 'bouquet' wider next time.....
