Thanks again to Marie for the links to making Dorset buttons! Here are some of Stephanie's and here is a tutorial. I have had such a great time making these.
Some that have not yet been beaded -
These have been beaded and attached to cuffs.
And this concludes the "button posts" - whew!
Miss Mila arrived this afternoon about 5:30, and we had quite a time until she went to bed. In the garden, she said (on the run) "Sunflowers! Sunflowers! I've never really seen one!" We'd already talked a little bit about seeds (the seed heads on the Queen Anne's Lace are particularly interesting), and she wanted to know where to get sunflower seeds. Planning ahead...
While I always enjoy my Notes from the Universe (such a great way to begin my morning during the week), sometimes the notes are even better than usual:
The only way to get what you really want, is to know what you really want.
And the only way to know what you really want, is to know yourself.
And the only way to know yourself, is to be yourself.
And the only way to be yourself, Jen, is to listen to your heart.I do,
French toast every now and then might help, too, Jen.
