Hearts & buttons

I am determined to be a little more organised than is my norm. So far this week it's working reasonably well. I have managed to tidy the back garden a little bit, progress with my second sock (more about that next week), finally get my wheel sorted so I can start cycling again, and wash the car. Not bad. But this post is about hearts and buttons, so I should get on with it.

In November at the Harrogate Knitting and Stitching Show I did a class on polymer clay buttons. I was really pleased with the result and asked for some bits for Christmas. Now, so far, I hadn't gotten around to playing with it but Dad asked Mam to knit him a cardigan and for me to make him some buttons. The cardy is grey wool with an occasional white fleck. Dad suggested a bit of yellow in the buttons to lift it and jazz it up a bit.  I think I may have got it wrong, but we will soon know.  Anyway, here are the six buttons (there are two spares but the pattern didn't last for those). They need holes and polishing.

And out of the remaining clay, and some I had left from November, I decided to make a few hearts. I haven't worked out what to do with those yet but Valentine's Day is coming up so will have to think of something.

And lastly here are some of the used up bits from November that will be necklaces.
