Button Art …

I simply adore buttons. I have a shoebox filled with them. I think I inherited the button-loving gene from my clever, creative Mam as she always had a tin for buttons and a tin for zips (and yes of course I also have a tin for zips too). My buttons are all colour sorted, and some are beautiful, some are ordinary, some are vintage, and some are absolutely glorious. The Husband teases me a little about my button collection but I know he loves me and my quirky button loving ways.

The Husband didn’t need to prove his love as he does this every day in every way, but if I did need proof then he hit the jackpot with this wonderful, original, button art skull made from just some of my adorable button collection …

Truly no ThreadShed should be without a button skull ❤️

What do you think?

Gothic Bride…

Yesterday we were honoured to be official witnesses at the wedding of some dear friends. A few months back the bride had an idea of her wedding dress and showed me some photos. Within a couple of weeks we started working on her design together, with a couple of days in The ThreadShed taming mountains of pink, purple and black tulle and net. The photos we took at the time were so lovely, with all the beautiful colours coming together on my little sewing machine. I posted a couple of teasers on social media back then, but finally I can do the big reveal and tell you that the bride looked absolutely stunning and the colours were just wonderful. When the wind blew the dress was a fascinating movement of glorious colour. Truly a spectacular, show stopping dress.

It was an honour to help this bride create her dream wedding dress and I would really love to help other brides create their dream dresses too. Oh and I have a huge box of vintage wedding dress patterns that need to be put to good use ❤️

Anyways … c’mon what do you think of this for a stunning wedding dress?
