Show and Tell

This week we have had the hottest weather you could imagine so I have been stuck inside for days. I have all the office work up to date (a job I hate but must do!!) and washing and ironing finished so yesterday I made myself a little button necklace (I showed you the vintage one I bought earlier.)
It was so easy - I just spread the buttons on an old towel on the floor and sat and treaded them onto black wool - very effective. 

Aren't these colours just fabulous together!!

A plan to wear them with this cute little cardi (if the weather ever gets cool enough!!) and my jeans.
(Sorry about this photo below -I found it quite hard to take the photo of my cardi.)

It really doesn't take much to keep me happy...

Very nice necklace. I tried it once and the buttons just wouldn't 'hang' nicely. How did you get yours in shape like that?
