My sewing room has been in a state of disarray the last few days ie a mess. But it is a creative one, and they are allowed, right? Elizabeth dragged out her paint, glue, lace, etc to make a sort of 3D painting:
On the other side of the table I was sorting out buttons:
About four months ago I ordered some packets of mixed buttons. I didn’t expect them to be mixed up in the parcel itself though – the individual packets weren’t sealed tight, so buttons were all over the place. Up till now I haven’t had the time to repackage them, but finally I made a start. First came the sorting, then putting them into little bags. I did the latter while Skype Sewing with Alice last night – well, she sewed, I packed buttons 🙂 I have a nice big tub of buttons for the shop now:
I tried to sort them according to size. I have a big jar of “large” buttons that I will sell individually because they are great for things like bags. Then I sorted the smaller ones like the ones in the pic above. I still have hundreds of mini buttons to sort and package… I might get a chance to do that today in between school and chores.
Don’t you just love creative messes?!
