Finally got round to some crafting this weekend. Thought I'd lost the will to craft...but it has returned. It's been about 14 months since I quit smoking and took up the evil Knititng Nancy - another highly addictive way to pass the time. I've made more button brooches and a new kind...made up of different buttons (I think I like them better). I'm a big fan of Button Therapy, so spending time immersed in their colours, shapes and textures kept me happy.

Yay for button therapy. Craft as therapy is a subject very dear to my heart! ;) The brooches look fantastic, Fran!

Lovely lovely! What is it about buttons? I have a huge jar in my kitchen and a bowl in my bathroom full of buttons and they make me smile! ODD!

I loved my Knitting Nancy! Oh, the memories... I will have to go on a dig through the archives of my childhood and see if I can find my Nancy too.
take care, gracia

I had a Knitting Nancy too! Never could figure what to do with all that knitted rope though!! LOL

Button therapy - hey that sounds much more satisfying and not so ouchy on the hip pocket as retail therapy :D
