I can't spare the space to have them all set out on my benchtop, but I feel a bit more familiar with my new little collection and I think I'll challenge myself to use at least one button today. Meanwhile I need to load some washing in the machine, get the kitchen cleared up for a lunch guest and start on some weeding before the day is too far established.

While my coffee brewed this morning I picked over my bowl of buttons. I found lots of groups, patterns, textures and contrasts.Some are speaking to me of garments needing practical embellishments--that's what buttons usually do--but others are speaking of greeting cards and stamp carving. Then there are possibilities for picking up texture from the different surfaces . . .
