Who's got the button?

The days are swirling by just like the leaves from our trees. So many things to do this time of year I can hardly sleep while my to do lists grow longer and longer. This past week I received a nice big package of wool in the mail. Very excited, so many yummy colors to work with. And so my Spring design work has begun, having so much fun with new ideas! 

Looking for 2 matching lavender buttons in my old button stash here, what are the odds. Score! 
So happy!

I store my loose buttons in this old kitty cookie jar, it is full to the tippy top.
My new buttons are now in my Hello Kitty lunch box :) Do you have a button jar?

I thought I would share progress on my "Oz" stocking. It's looking good, but I have burned out on it for now and am sitting it aside until I get my stocking mojo back. 

Our Christmas cactus has teeny buds on it! We are so excited and hoping to see blooms for Christmas. 
We started this cactus from just 2 little segments from Grandpa in Florida's plant. It was so easy to grow and we feel like we have a little bit of Gramps here with us every day! 

Time for me to get back to my sewing. Enjoy your week, every day is a gift!

I store my buttons in a reproduction pickle jar, lots of room and I can see what I have. Love your stocking, I need to start thinking about that for my grandson.
