Blackberry yarn and backtack buttons
I admit that I am having a hard time picking fabric(s) for my backtack project. To help me along (or make it harder, I'm not sure yet) I went to my favourite button store, Button Button and found these great vintage buttons. I'd really like to find a soft alpaca felt or maybe a slightly tweedy or boucle type fabric to show these off. Instead, I had to settle for my skein of blackberry dyed yarn and a patch of sunlight at work.
I'm off to Seattle tomorrow night on the train to see Holly so I'll post when I can. To all of my friends going to Maryland Sheep and Wool have a wonderful time. I look forward to your reports in the coming week.
