1  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / ASIA / Re: China? on: October 09, 2009 03:58:19 AM
...also Xi'an has the 'Muslim quarter' which has a lot of interesting and beautiful textile... i have only been there once, so i am not sure if this is what you have already mentioned?

I will be returning to China next year and it will be very handy to know where these things are, though i will be in Shandong and not in Shan'xi!

good advice!

beautiful cross stitch, very lovely.
I am going back to china next year to teach for another year.

These textiles are beautiful! Schnerby, i would love to see your examples as well if you do start up a flickr collection!

Love it!
Did  you paint the background?

yes, the background is first painted, then buttons stuck over it- it makes the lines nice and crisp!
Wow!  That is really colorful. How long did it taketo complete?

ermmm about a month or so i think!
I wanna come over and play in your buttons! Pretty please? Buttons are so fun! I have always loved them ever since I was a little kid!

Love it! Am so jealous that there were enough buttons to cover the suitcase and then to *fill* it! My button collection is tiny in comparison. How did she end up with so many buttons in the first place!?

well i used to buy her some buttons when we were in high school, and i guess if i did, then many others did... buttons are known to be her "thing"
she just has a mega mega collection...

well here is Mine and my friend katy's epic entry into the mega button challenge. much blood sweat and tears went into this beauty. all the hot glue in the world to! Katy's fingers lost all sense of touch from so much exposure to hot glue! As soon as i saw this challenge i knew it was meant for her, she has the biggest button collection i have EVER seen! i must say it did make a big dint in her collection thats for sure!
 now, on to the pictures!

and with the left over buttons...

I think this may be the first time i have entered a craft challenge properly Smiley
yay for buttons!
- Christi and Katy

i think a bit of premeditated mess with strange and unlikely materials is a good way of A: relieving stress, and B: getting in the mood for some more serious crafting. She said it was a sketch book from a store- on sale- so there is no need to be rude about another persons expression of creativity.
