I Want to Make This!

This is one of the coolest things that I have seen in a while! I love the idea of mosaics in fabric, glass, ceramics—what ever—but the idea of buttons seems a little more whimsical.

I have a collection of buttons that I am just starting (because everyone needs a collection of buttons!). I think that this project will possibly change my focus on acquiring unique buttons to possibly trying to collect into color families!

Happy Inauguration Day!

As I’m still finding my blogging voice I’m not sure how political I want to get. I do however want to say that as a high school social studies teacher the historian in me is in awe of the election and now inauguration of Barack Obama. It’s amazing, inspiring, and just plain awesome. In honor of the occasion, how about some Obama craftiness?

You can find a lot of Obama knitting and crochet projects on Ravelry as I did with the Crochet Obama and Obama Afghan. I also found a whole quilt show of Obama quilts on flickr.

Anyway, I hope that you enjoy the craftiness and I look forward to us making even more history!
