This has not been the most productive month of my quilting, stitching life due to some kind of lingering skjoxpeddlfkdjf-ITIS. And for much of the last 30 days my life has centered around this box:
You can imagine how quickly that got to be ENOUGH ALREADY!!!
Since a variety of medicines and medical approaches were not bringing relief very quickly, I knew for my sanity’s sake I needed to find some kind of therapeutic distraction. Something sewing related, not too strenuous, not requiring much focus. (Even 2 Tylenol can make me fuzzy) hmmmmmm I needed to trade the Kleenex box in for a different kind of box!
The button box was in chaos! Okay, I admit – the buttons were not even in a specific box. There was a box, a couple of tins, some jars and some plastic bags.
The whole sorting by color and setting special ones aside goes back to the days when our great grandmother would keep us occupied with the button box.
I cannot explain it but I feel better already.
What are your tips for keeping your buttons easy to access?
