Love a button designs

IMG_7280

I have for a long time had a love of buttons. My mother used to have a collection of them in the drawer of her Singer treadle sewing machine. They fascinate me and I go on special shopping missions in Melbourne for lovely old buttons, including visiting the famous’Button Lady’ at the weekend Camberwell Markets and Buttonmania in the beautiful Nicholas Building in Swanston Street. Go to http://www.buttonmania.com.au/‎. I am surrounded by buttons in my studio.  I put them in jars to look at, I play with them artistically, create costume jewellery and use them to enhance my embroidery pieces. Cxx
