Cute as a Button

My friend A just came home from a trip to Europe--including a few days in London and a visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum. She picked up these little cuties for me in the museum shop.
Her description of the museum and the fabric samples made my mouth water! I'm not planning a trip to London anytime soon, but it sounds like it would be worth it just for the V&A museum.

And how did I get on with my visit to the Guild and finishing my threading?? Well, the truth is, I didn't. I just didn't go. I must remember to put a line through the morning after an evening of teaching. I don't have the mental energy to apply myself to anything much.

Now today, I must do some weaving. I have class tomorrow and I have to finish the double weave project. We're starting on a round robin exercise next. That means that we each set up a project on our loom and then work around the class weaving a sample on each of the looms. By the end of the exercise we each have up to ten samples. At least that's the plan. Getting behind in the middle of that is not an option.
