I have had a lovely making day with my friend Gill Pinkney-gillpinkney.blogspot.com. We take it in turn to go to each others houses, drink lots of tea, eat cake and generally put the world to rights. Today I was finishing things off, I have a terrible habit of having several things on the go at once. Gill was nuno felting a scarf.

I took some home made lentil and vegetable soup, Gill supplied lovely wholemeal buns and then a carrot cake slice for afters.

We listened to lovely music, sorted through Gill's button collection and my work box and did a few swops - some gorgeous linen lingerie buttons (a particular favourite of mine) mother-of-pearl buttons for some beads and pins. Think I came out on top on that one! Thank you Gill.

So all in all a very good productive day, I left Gill throwing her scarf into her kitchen sink - all in the name of felting honestly! I will leave you with a picture of some buttons I picked up at my local flea market on Saturday, just gorgeous. Until next time, hope you have all had a lovely day.
