The past few weeks has been all about the finishing details of the work for my exhibition.
Buttons seemed like a very appropriate way to finish these pieces. Who doesn’t have a button tin? I loved digging through Mum’s button tin as a child, and still did as I searched for the right button for each piece. So many of these buttons have a memory to me…Spare buttons from hand made cardigans, dresses and jackets, precious buttons removed to be recycled before a garment was thrown out. My own button tin, it’s like carbon dating my wardrobe and the clothes I made for my young children.
After that, I treated myself to some lovely fabrics from Woven Stories Textiles
