Of Stuff and Things

When I begin a project I like to have everything at hand.  In fact I like to have more than I'll probably need -- just to be on the safe side.  

So you could say that my 'mouse journeys' started with a trip to Etsy.  There I found two wonderful sources for felted wool - TaDaa Studio and Felt On The Fly.  Each has beautiful colors and were so helpful in my search for 'mouse' shades.

Next came thread.  I dove into my stash of "Wildflowers" thread by Caron.  These were left overs from my punchneedle days and with their variegated tones turned out to be perfect.

Ahh, a few smooth rocks for weight.

Last, but certainly not least, were the buttons.  Now who could ever have TOO many buttons?  Not I certainly.  No matter what I'm working on, I always tend to add new buttons to my collection just in case...

So my days of procrastination are over and it is time to get stitching...

"There's nothing wrong with procrastination.  Or is there?  I'll leave it to you to decide, but only if you have the time." - Craig Brown


  1. :) Be prepared. And even better, have extra!

  2. One can never have too many buttons! You're well set up for your meeces now, though!

  3. Penny, you are very organized! I admire that, and I agree, never too many buttons! Will be watching...

  4. Whatever your project, the colors are lovely!

  5. You have set the stage for amazing possibilities. Now I can't wait to see what you make!

  6. This is going to be fun-to see what you will cook up. Amazing, isn't it, what our hands can do?

  7. No such thing as too many buttons, threads, fabric, beads... Ah, I think I know why my house is so full!
