WOYWW 206 - more buttons - progress this time!

Just a quick one from me as I'm now at work and I'd forgotten to set up my WOYWW desk last night.  For all the deets, visit Queen Julia HERE.
 
My desk is currently in the lounge because I can sit there and work and am not segregating myself from the family.  It also means Lil Miss B can help out with the makings...
 
So, here we are - my desk space.....
 
 
and my progress so far....
 
 
 
I was foolish enough to decide to make buttonholes for all my actual wedding guests AND try to personalise one or two of them (Royal Artillery button, anyone?).  I need to finish these before I finish the bouquets because I need to make sure I have enough buttons.  Strangely enough, I don't think I do..... ulp..... must buy more.....  ROFL  The buttonhole on its own is for my beloved groom.  Ooh - and the cogs you see?  They're that set of Xcut Chronology dies, using mirri card.  I have to say, they are now my most used die set after Labels 4 from Spellbinders.  I wholeheartedly recommend them.
 
Sorry if you don't see me this week - we have just 37 DAYS LEFT...... and that means I'm a tad busy.  Tonight we're hitting Hobbycraft for some bits and pieces including foam core board for a "polaroid" frame.  Check it out on Pinterest.... This weekend will be spent up to my elbows in royal icing working on our fruit cake. No I don't mean Mr BAt least the wedding dress is now ordered/paid for, we have all Mr B's and Lil Miss B's clothes, and the rings are in our possession - everything else is just gravy....
 
So, happy hopping - you might just see me this week!

Happy WOYWW. Another amazingly talented and very busy crafter. The wonderful rich purple really caught my eye - and I love the cogs. You would never guess that is card. So much work to do - but it will be worth it. Look forward to seeing more photos (will follow your blog). Ali x #27

Oh such clever little buttonholes. I hope all the wedding prep goes well. Shout up if we can help with anything - what sort of buttons do you need? x Jo

Anna said...

What lovely little gears and sprockets pins! Love them!
My workdesk/art studio is in the living room which is convenient most of the time...but not so convenient when the cat walked through your wet paint like my Sneakers did tonight.

Your button holes are simply lovely and what a wonderful keepsake. I wish I'd thought of that, my son's wedding is in 4 weeks LOL!

Enjoy the rest of the week. Susi #137

Heya. Me again. If you go on Amazon and put in hoover covers, there are Witchey ones on there, and the price is not three bad either! I was tempted to buy one but I think Doris would be upset!

Gorgeous buttonholes, I think I might have to get those dies now though I have some cog ones somewhere, think they are Sizzlets therefore the ebosser will not cut them, or not properly.

I hope the cars are fixed for your wonderful wedding!
