Winter Pastimes

Lately, I have been drawn to needle and thread while sitting in front of the TV at night after a long day at work. I don't really have any plan in mind... I just keep reaching for whatever supply might be within reach.... Here is my latest little fabric collage.... most of these art supplies were purchased from the fabulous Julie Collings. www.juliecollings.etsy.com I am definately in a sequin and embroidery thread phase. I enjoyed the results. I will likely turn it into some kind of valentine.

My husband says I have a vintage button magnet in my head. Everywhere I go I find them. I have to buy them. Then I sell them on my etsy shop and then I find more at thrift stores, antique stores... its crazy. I love them but my house will soon be overflowing with cute vintage plastic buttons I tell you!! Have a happy weekend!

So funny that hens teeth has commented right above because I was going to say, no kidding, I have been doing the same thing with a little needle and thread in front of the TV, and it was inspired by some darling collages that I saw hens teeth doing a couple of days ago! I love yours with the soft blue with a pop of orange!
