Little China, Elephant, Buttons,

Its been a mad house at home this week, not helped by the wind and rain, last week i had a small roof leak they came out to have a look added some stuff in the gap that the rain was coming though, they said see if that helps and if not will have to renew the seal again,

But after about 5 days i had to call them out again after more rain "Yep" its was coming in at same place again, but due to all damage to other homes around they are very busy and maybe a week before they get round to fixing it,

In between all this i have done some x-stitching on the Elephant and added some of the back stitch as i go along, this helps as there is a fair bit to do on this one, He got his 2nd eye now too, i might have to redo 1 eye as looks a bit odd.

More on little china, around the cats paws and more to the flowers, there is no way this will be done for xmas,

Any ideas what i can do with a load of buttons that is just sitting in a big tin, not sure what to do with them all, ?

Happy Crafting everyone,

Tracey x

Lovely progress on both your wips. I have no idea what to do with the buttons. I would probably keep them in the tin and forget about them. They might come in useful one day.

Thanks for stopping by and for the well wishes on my wrist. What beautiful projects you have in progress. The elephant is very nice, the eyes look just fine to me.
Looks like you a have a nice supply of buttons. I've seen some pretty pillows made with buttons. Some with button lettering, one that comes to mind spelled L O V E. Maybe google button pillows for more ideas if that's an interest to you. Crazy quilting is also a possibility.
