Still here and still crafting....

Eek. I can't believe how long it's been since I last posted. Thankfully, I recovered from that nasty bug I caught just before Valentine's Day. I wasn't a 100% when I went to work that weekend, but I survived and am recovered now.

While I was on the mend and didn't have the energy to even sew I still wanted to be "making". I sat down and sorted through what I could do that didn't require too much concentration or energy ( I was so weak and without stamina), so here's what I came up with...


a button bracelet made completely from my stash of buttons and some glass beads I'd also been saving.
My technique for working with wire needs some refining, but it was so much fun!
I was able to use one-of-a-kind and special to me buttons. Like the sparkly ones Nicolette sent me and the pearly white ones from Corry. My new bracelet has survived its test run at the flower shop as well as receiving interested looks. I love it and now I'm thinking I need some earrings and a button necklace to complete the ensemble. ;o) More good reasons to keep collecting buttons, right?
