Day 292 : Stash


Day 292 : Stash - One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett

Day 292 : Stash

More playing with braids and soutache today! This one has more depth than the image shows - I have padded the centre so it it like an odd little hill from the side. Which actually works quite well. 

Mark dug up potatoes and onions today, so it'll probably be soup for lunch this week. 

I hope that you have all had a good weekend - thanks for stopping by!

Size: 31mm / just under 1 1⁄2" / 56L / 


  1. Love the way the light photographs as an erratic zigzag on the soutache - quite pretty. I have a box of upholstery gimps that I've used as edgings on ornaments and if I'm careful I can unravel the machine stitching and get useful gimps in pretty colours. Soutache is harder to come by - it seems to need mail ordering. You would think it would be easy to find with the mania for soutache jewelry. I think I'll just use up the inherited bits and bobs for now.
    I don't think I've ever had a freshly dug potato - are they tastier than storebought?
    We are going to try a grocery run tomorrow and I'll get some then.
    I had forgotten my impression that your dad was in the service and you were raised on bases - would explain the scatty notebooks!
    Oh RATS!! The next door yard is getting done, which means a steady trail of anthistamines against the junk that gets kicked up - off to dose up. Hope your Monday is a good one with minimum of stress. Stay warm, dry, masked up and well. Hugs and a carrot all around. Charlotte xxx

    1. The potatoes were lovely - I don't know if its because they were freshly dug, or just a different variety actually. Of course if the first reason, there's so many they won't taste like that for long!
      Soutache is hard to come by, I agree - at least the nice stuff. Mind you, I think a lot of the things I like to work with are hard to come by. I'm just weird perhaps. Thanks goodness for our stashes!
      I hope the pollen and what have you hasn't been too bad. One of my really bad triggers is oilseed rape flowers - and of course this spring all three fields around us had them!

      Keep well both of you - stay masked! Carrot and celery it it! xxx
