Monday Buttons

>> Monday, November 9, 2009

Well, much of my time last week was spent making things I can't show you yet! I also played with some of my new buttons. I tried out trimming some trees.

Then I tried another combination. I think the final project will not have trimmings, but I will place the buttons in other spots.

I have this guy out on my cutting table. I was planning a design with just the antlers, mittens and yoyo nose, but my husband said I needed more detail. He also said he wants some of the design credit:). For now I'm trying to decide how to assemble him. I had precut the background as I had originally planned to applique, but now with this arrangement I see I could patchwork the head and antlers, and applique the ears and mittens. Those are also two of my new buttons on his face:)

This project may have to stew as I am eager to try out the free pattern from Gudrun today for making a quilt as you go tree which can be used as an advent calendar.

So many plans, so little time. Need some more fabric and batting too!

Go to Judy's Mr. Linky to see what everyone else in the group has been up to. I'm also going to try to enjoy the outdoors today as it is going to go above 10 degrees Celsius - perhaps for the last time this fall?

With Joy,
Sarah Vee
