Lovely little buttons...

I have had such fun creating my Etsy store and deciding what to make and what to sell...I really enjoy sewing  my little church bags...I have used these for my personal use and decided others might like them too!! The one I use most often is my hand bells bag that holds my notebook and gloves.

Most recently I have been selling buttons, some that I have cherished through the years and some newer. It just does not seem right to keep them all for are the latest cuties....

They were made in the 80's and are plastic not glass BUT they look like glass...with lovely hand painted pink  roses with green leaves and a white dotted border. They have metal shanks and there are four of them.

I also have some other hand painted ones that I will post later...

WELL, surprise of all surprises !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Guild did NOT select the easier Scrappy Heart for our "Block of the Quarter" but the lovely
North Carolina Lily!!! Isn't that great and what a lovely quilt top one of our members will receive.
So, I am off to the Thistlebee Quilt Shoppe in Goldsboro to select background fabric. Those interested members will receive color instructions and background fabric and select reds and greens from their own stashes to complete.

Here is the background fabric that I purchased...

If you are interested in the updated and modified instructions that I am giving them, let me know and I will send them to you...OR just
