New Button Samplers

This morning began with a chilly frost...
So after breakfast I sat with some blank cards & some painted buttons..
I had to alter some of the button samplers as I had renewed things...
So instead of tramping over the same patch....
New Samplers were arranged...
These samplers don't need any stitching designs ...
But you can of course create your own story...with what is packaged ???
Imagine .. a stocking with these scenes or take one santa & just add a few bordering stitches..
repeat with the other santa   

This one is like a mixed bag of buttons.... tip them out...
You know how it goes ....LOL
Spread these out a bit & do little running stitches between each button....  grids 
Stitch some words maybe.... make some snowflake stitches  X with another X over it..
Or use each button for some separate projects 

 and ...so it goes on.....
  and on.....LOL
Plus you get to save $4 on each sampler pack....
Good way to collect more for the money

So my way of cheering us up...in a nasty world of upheaval, unhappiness & anger...
but we can sit quitely ....waiting for the storms to blow over & escape into some nicer space !

Dear Barbara,no I wait until autumn prepairing for Christmas.No sailing yet,but try to get my pool ready.We have problem here on this island with water,didn´t have rain and snow and the ground water is very low. We are not allowed to water in the garden and not fill the pool with water.I hope the water in the pool will be enough for the summer.But there are bigger problems in the worlds nowadays:-((. It´s really so sad.

Hi Gudrun,
Drought in Sweden..it is hard to imagine that. It is always a horrible time..searching to the skies for clouds & rain. We have had an amazing wet winter & everything has greened...so hope your rains arrive soon.
Yes the other problems are man made..just beyond comprehension.
