those buttons are cute!

thanks everyone for the kind compliments!  I was pretty worried, as my eyes and hands weren't working too well.  I had to get some reader glasses and use them, but when I took them off after awhile, my eyes wouldn't adjust back to normal.  sheesh!  is this the end of my crafting days??

I'm loving those buttons, especially the shaggy one!  It reminds me of latch-hook, is that what you did for it honeyd?

WIST it up babee...WIST and shout!!

Great work on the buttons - lovely!
I suspect the shaggy one is turkey knots (aka tufted knot), am I right? You can get some great effects with this stitch.

Cheesy Im so glad you recieved sarah! (sorry that yours is so simple~i thought it would have been too overpoweing for the subject matter)

those buttons are awesome honeyd! Smiley
(lol two of my awsome past swap partners paired up! Cheesy )

I love the octopus, hand painting always looks so nice on fabric, what kind of paint did you use KJBaloo?

And scissor fobs are always useful- and it must be nice to have eye candy like alorraloras pouch!

This gallery is so so awesome!
Has to be in a best of 2010 category ^^

The diversity of stitches on the buttons is amazing.  Some of those stitches, I'm still working up the nerve to try.

Love the look of the trigular scissors pouch.  The vine stitch is great.

The kittens are cute, but I really like the hedgehog!

Mr Cute Tentacles- Such a treasure to hang on your tree. Love the shading and flow of his tentacles!

you all remember the press and seal tip?  Yeah.... don't use it on handmade paper..... doesn't work so good coming off...

Good to know.

Turkey knots?  Grin That has to be the most hilariously named stitch ever. It's now my favourite for that reason.

They are Turkey knots- but I was always under the impression that it meant the country, not the poultry! Does anybody know?

I used regular old fabric paint but watered down to give it a watercolor feel. I just kept dabbing at the fabric and letting the color soak in Smiley

CraftyLittleMonkey- sooo glad you liked! I swear I drew out this fantastic gnome sitting on a mushroom design...it was great on paper!  Then sucked so bad in execution I felt like bawling. SO knowing that this second attempt worked is a HUGE relief to me!

I know - sounds even sillier than huck weaving, sprat's head, or piggyback daisy.  Cheesy

Though I don't know for sure, I'd guess Turkey refers to the country too - but it still sounds amusing! (I'm obviously easily amused  Wink )
