Washing Buttons

It is a running joke in our house how often I plan to do things like laundry or tidying and end up sewing or getting distracted by ribbons instead.

Yesterday was a case in point. Instead of doing the washing up, I washed some buttons...Many of these will soon be appearing on some new eco flowers, so it was vital they were washed asap. I can't wait to start matching up buttons and flowers - playing around with colour is always such fun.

lovely buttons! last time I washed a batch, some of them started to dissolve! I don't know what they were made of, but it was gross. :)

Of course you had to wash them straight away! Why would you even consider doing dishes first. ;)

As I tell my daughter - you have to get your priorities right. Buttons are always high priority. I wouldn't want to introduce dirty buttons into my sewing box...

Buttons are definitely more fun than housework!

i had to wash a load of buttons once, there were some ones which looked like triffles and they melted all over me too!

Another time I came home to see her ironing. I thought she was ironing my shirts - in fact she was ironing maps!
