A New Weird Level of Hoarding...

...because really, those of us with large yarn stashes know at some level we are all guilty of hoarding. I'm lucky enough that my husband considers my stash further insulation to the house at this point, and doesn't mind my purchases as long as I keep them to a dull roar.

Yesterday, my Mom, Willow, Piper and I were at Joann's, picking up stuff for Willow's biography book report project and some buttons for a sweater Mom knit for Piper. I was helping Mom choose her buttons when I saw these:


Aren't they beautiful?!!

I have no clue what I will make with them, but I had to buy them for some as-yet-unidentified button-requiring project. And even better yet, all the buttons were BOGO! I did some searching online for a beautiful orange or yellow yarn to make a sweater with (for who, I'm not sure) but haven't found anything that grabbed me yet. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Maybe a sweater for Willow something for the Sping. I love the buttons & the pattern on them.

They remind me of that teacup I just bought myself. So yes, I can see why you bought them. Hoarding buttons. There are worse things!

Miss Babs has some awesome oranges/corals.

Ooh, they are very pretty. Wouldn't they pop on a different colour cardi - like yellow, or teal :0)
I recently arranged all my buttons by colour and put them in recycled glass jars. They look pretty on the shelf :0)
