here. As you can see the pic is of one of my obsessions - heart shaped buttons. Sometime back I thought I needed a motif, to make decorative items, "pretties" and although I love spirals, and have books about their symbolic meaning and use, I decided to go with hearts, as a more easily recognised and universal symbol. And its so much easier to find heart shaped embellishments, hence the big box of buttons!!! I've made quite a few pieces based on hearts and sold several of them, so it was a good choice. Pop along to my website for a look.
Saturday brought information about a postcard exhibiting opportunity, locally - needed by the end of Feb, so better get on with it! Wonder if there's a resurgence in handmade postcards. Making them and sending 'naked' through the post has been around for a great many years now - however the Embroiderers' Guild have a project making Olympic postcards, and there are other postcard projects around. And yes I have made heart postcards.... I could make some more, after all, I have all these buttons to use up!!!
