And my Dad is the King of breaking stuff (like his bones....... ride on lawn mowers. Sometimes simultaneously), but that's a whole other story.
Mum is very crafty, she does a lot of quilting, cardmaking, makes her own soap, and one of her latest things is these button necklaces - which I love!! I have a white button one, but I love the coloured ones too.
The button are somehow crocheted on (don't ask me now), and the necklace sits very nicely on. I would have showed you a picture of one on me, but I looked so 'saggy red blotchy skinned' I just can't do it. This picture shows the simple button closure at the back.
I think they are fabulous and told Mum I would list some on Etsy for her. I told her this about 6 months ago. Note: if I ever say I'm going to do some for you - don't hold your breath waiting and be aware that you WILL need to remind me. Not always, sometimes I'll take care of it straight away. It's not that I say I'll do something with no intention of ever doing it. I always intend to do what I say I'm going to. It's just that, more often than not, I get distracted, sidetracked..........then it's a matter of waiting until I remember what it is I'm supposed to be doing, and doing it.
I've put off listing these (plus one of Mums' kids snuggle quilts) because I had intended on making some things myself and listing them all together. Don't think I'm going to be getting much made myself in the near future, so I plan to get these listed soon.
