Hey, can this be right? No S&T today? This is my first time ever starting one! How fun!

OK, here is another new thing. I am having so much fun with these buttons and I am getting really excited about sewing. I am researching sewing machines, I have found some great funky jacket patterns, and I am starting to drool over fabric. All in order to use these handmade buttons! Here are the rest of the pictures of new designs from my new little button catalog.

Melanie, I love them all. I just can't pick a favorite! I think the color also enhances the earthy feeling. Great job :clap:

Mary, not only do I like the use of frit, I also love the shape. The angular lines give it an added dimension.

Here's one from me. I just can't get myself in the fall color mood yet. Lampwork created by WC's GinaJ (I love her stuff).

Melanie - great buttons, my faves are the one in the top left and the one in the bottom right corner! And the dragonfly!

Mary - that plate is GORGEOUS!! :clap:

Beth - yummy bracelet, very summer-ly, reminds me of watermelons! :)

Nothing from me today, I've run out of ideas! :eek:

Mary! Love the use of Val's frits!!

Beth, pretty bracelet with Gina's beads -- great colors

Melanie! You rock! Those are incredible!! :clap:

DD Holly is here this weekend and I just grabbed this necklace off her neck to take a picture. Pearls and her lampworked beads -- She's Holly Bailey Designs on WC but doesn't post very often -- Can't do it from work and has a dial-up at home :rolleyes:

Well, I've been in a big creative funk for weeks. :crying:
I made a couple of pieces for the Women Soaring Pilots Assn. Their logo is a glider and the pair-of-birds "W" (for women). I also made a really fugly reversible pendant of Brazilian agate and peridot. I don't know why I"m posting it. Must be the bourbon talkin'. :) (The photo even stinks. You can't see the bands in the agate or the green of the peridot!) Oh well, I had fun!

Hi everyone!

Mary I love that plate/bowl/thing!!!! great shape and design with the frit!

Kit, which one were you saying was ugly? I hope it was the first one because that is the one I like the best - I think it would look really great on a black leather cord. Hope your block is lifting or lifted. Blocks suck.

gb-beads - very pretty necklace of your daughters!

Andee, you can't have run out of ideas!!! Join my freeform challenge then before you get bored. ;)

Melanie, I love all your beads - they are all great.

Nothing from me AGAIN... maybe soon...
