Visiting and Wombling

I've had a fabulous time over the weekend catching up with friends, my daughter, my Mum and seeing the play. It was "Taking Off" written by Roger Hall but directed by my daughter and it was a very real performance. It sure must have been a lot of hard work for the cast as there was noone to bounce your lines off.. four women telling their own stories about their mid life OE but all on the one stage.

And during the visits I fossicked through friends button jars and came up with a few for my bag project... these are 'rings' wink wink....I'm entering a challenge so can't let out too many secrets!!!
I love this top one... This bottom one is beautiful but I might try and clean it a little. Thats a NZ 20c beside them.

These ones are gorgeous too and will make beautiful 'rings'.
And here's some of my acquisitions today. They're all different .. I certainly don't need them all for this project but I'm planning on a little wall hanging to showcase some of them .. later.
