"Hand and Heart Hanging Pinkeep"
from the "Little Stitches Handwork Club"
By Lori Brechlin for Notforgotten Farm
I had so much time stitching this piece!
Since I am selfish and not giving this finished piece to a "friend" as originally charted,
I decided to change the word to "faith".
I added a little antique key and ribbon bow.
And a second little ribbon bow to the back.
It makes me happy :)
I recently found a great Ball jar of old buttons at an antique mall.
It looked like a great collection of old buttons and the price was reasonable.
I've slowly been going through the jar
delighting in each little button.
At the top are some of the more unusual buttons that I found in the jar.
I think that the buckle at the very top may be lead or zinc.
There is a great selection of bone buttons.
and vegetable ivory
and some great porcelain underwear buttons.
I'm enjoying the process of just going through a handful here and there.
Who know what else I will find in that jar :)
