Buttons & Buddies

Okay to bring us up to date with everything that is finished, there is now a button heart…

Which caused me some confusion as to how to transfer the heart shape to the linen because I wasn’t convinced my disappearing fabric pen would live up to its name.  Then I thought, doh, just sew the outline…

And of course, my Christmas present giving list couldn’t be complete without some Buddies…

One in Sirdar Snowflake, so it’s fluffier than the average Buddy but the rows were a pain to count

and a Rudolph and Snowman.  I did this snowman in Sirdar Snuggly DK for a change – its a lovely soft baby yarn but a little bit too soft for a buddy.  It had a tendenancy to stretch if overstuffed – a bit like me after Christmas lunch – especially since my Auntie Ann takes it as a personal challenge to see how much she can get on a dinner plate!

Made – 16/29 with 2 days to go (I know that can’t be right because I don’t seem to have that many started although some are for couples but still!)

Panic level – 5ish/10 (Fiona – I think it may be so low because we have a Lavendar Farm up the road, I don’t know what they sell as I’ve never been but have meant to – so what better time than when panic buying for Christmas – and Marks & Spencer open 24 hours – I just need to check if Marks and Spencer were related and if so – hey a family business)

  1. Paula – I’m panicking for you now to save you the trouble 🙂 I’m very good at it (so I’m told)! I thought you could do with one less thing … although M&S seems like a great back up plan. If I lived anywhere near an M&S I would be so happy.

    Love the button heart – very original and I may just have to steal the idea for next year (I don’t have original ideas!). BTW, my disappearing fabric pen really does vanish completely with the application of a tiny amount of cold water. I was sceptical too, but it does work!

  2. The heart is a fantastic idea! And the fuzzy little snowman could not be cuter.
