What a January. So much to do and so little time to do it in! After the festive week I started two Dorset Button projects and returned to writing my book on the history of Dorset Button. All was going well and I thought my New Year’s resolution was well on the way to being completed. But, as often happens, circumstances over took my well laid plans. And to crown it all just as I was ready to unveil my pie de resistance Dorset Button for Valentine’s Day I go and get the flu!
Not to be deterred here is the button that would have been displayed in the Cygnet Gallery in Shaftesbury, Dorset, ready for Valentine’s Day on the 14th February. I worked this button on a 26cm ring in a lovely Banana Yarn. The beads I found amongst my collection. The velvet ribbon, again from my collection, is a lovely vintage ribbon that I have been looking forward to working with.
I will still display this button in the Cygnet Gallery but have renamed it “I Love Dorset Buttons” from its original title “Be My Valentine”.
My second project will be ready in a couple of weeks so will keep you posted. But for now I can get my head down and continue writing.
