I joined the Feeling Stitchy embroidered button swap a few weeks ago. I was partnered with a lovely gal named Amy. We chatted in email, I couldn't stop talking as usual, but I loved poking around and learning more about her.
She really got to the heart of my life - she picked up the theme of water, or Gifts from the Sea, and I love how she interpreted it!
This is my favorite (right now), the light on water button. LOVE love love.
And she sent a whole bunch of goodies along with the buttons - the chocolate is already out of the picture, heheh.
I loved every bit of the package she sent! The jewelry is spot-on - the colors I wear, the lightness and silver I like, and not fussy - just simple beauty. And so very much reminiscent of the sea life and plants around here. And I have plans for the frame already, I'm going to put a picture of Phoebe in it and have it on my desk when I get a new job. I have resisted opening the beads or ribbon until I'm finished with another project that's in progress right now. She also sent some lovely linen, I have plans for it - and the buttons - already!
I can't wait for Amy to get my swap package, so I can share what I made. I had so much fun! I've never made embroidered buttons before but now I'm hooked! Buttons for everyone! :)
