My Dyslexia

Having the skill to write, spell, and punctuate has never been my strong suit. Growing up as a young child I was always nurtured to be creative and artistic which came naturally to me but I could never quite grasp written language. I now know that it's a learning disabilty with a name: DYSLEXIA.



I write from the heart and I make my best effort to get the words on the page properly but as you'll see I don't always succeed. I ask you to enjoy what I write and post but to be understanding and kind. Brian

Button Button Whos Got the Button


Buttons are a great passion of mine if that is not clear bye now LOL

The images on this quilt were made of buttons on my computer.

These images were made bye placing the buttons face down on the scanner bed and arranging then with old scissors and needle cases.

I have had lots of questions about weather the buttons have been sewed on or how did I put them on I am happy to report they were hours of hand sewing to make this border.

Disclaimer: ( no buttons were hurt destroyed or altered in any way in the making of this quilt)

This is a darn cool idea, Brian, scanning and then printing the buttons before piecing in the fabric. I've done it with flowers but never thought to do it with anything else! The look is awesome...
