More color combos...

this one actually includes the dreaded yellow:I think they came out pretty nice, even with the yellow :)

And some button flowers, just for fun: These are gracing my window sill in the studio. Lisa and I made them one night to pass a little time.

buttons, who has the buttons? I do!! In flowers, of course :) Some will be for sale at shows, some will be made into pins, and some will go to the Quilt Center. If I get real ambitious, some will go on Etsy :)
