TAST & Buttons

I'm so looking forward to sharon b's 2012 TAST challenge which starts next week.
Inspired by my dear friend Carolyn Saxby (http://carolynsaxby.blogspot.com/) who mentioned that she is thinking of a theme for her work in TAST, and as I have done about half the stitches in the 2007 and all in the 2010 challenges, with no theme, I decided to choose a theme this time too.
So ... I've enjoyed using buttons on Christmas cards this year ... I've had a good sort out of many old boxes tucked away and I've found hundreds of buttons.
I'll be doing TAST, with buttons, (and no doubt flowers and beads, which I can't resist), this time. Let's hope Sharon's stitches are easy enough for me.
This pre-challenge piece is Backstitch and Buttons - very easy!


  1. Dear Connie, I had no idea you had a new blog. I kept visiting the old one ... how out of touch I am! Have now added myself as a follower :o)

    Stitch with buttons is a great theme for TAST ... you are sure to keep it going if it's something you enjoy. Looking forward to Tuesday

    Happy new year dear Connie xx

  2. love your ability to commit to a challenge.
    i've been thinking about the TAST challenge but just haven't gotten myself organized enough to feel like i should jump in there . . .
    with 2012 just around the corner, i better get something figured out~!


  3. What a good idea to make the TAST challenge more interesting.

    I don't think I've commented on Flickr, but I've very much been enjoying seeing all the holiday cards you've been making :-).
