V&A buttons

These are buttons I bought on Saturday at the V&A (Victoria and Albert museum) shop... months ago, my friend Sylvania got me some gorgeous ones and i thought I better check for some more, now that the cold is coming, and i need to be making projects... for me and the two little ones ;-)

I love, particularly, the ones with the crayons... so cute...

Japanese fabrics

These are some of the super cute "detail" fabrics which my mother in law brought for me from japan. She explained that they are not silk, and so I should not feel the pressure... which sort of makes me feel better, but you must agree with me that they look gorgeous still, so I will be needing to carefully consider where to use them :-)

Last weekend, probably you have read it on any of my other blogs, I was at a market with two of my friends promoting our work and our friends´, and I made little aprons for all three of us to put the coins from the postcards that we had at the stand. They had nothing in particular, but 3 "pockets", but I was temped to use one of these on mine, as they are quite feminine... I think it is good that i did not, as i am sure i can do better than that and find something more special to make.... now that i come to think so, my "secret Santa" wallet is breaking :-)
