Plus - check out the cool handmade glass shawl pin I indulged in (Christmas gift certificates are a beautful thing). They are handmade by a local artist, Linda Lawrence. They are sold in the LYS along with her buttons and knitting needles. Really cool - you can check them out here and here. She did a demo at the shop today using her buttons and felt cut into interesting shapes to make pins to put on bags or whatever your creativity desires.
You can't beat a project that's done in a few hours. Already started another one to put away for Christmas next year with a metal shawl pin that I ordered from ETSY. What a nice and relaxing Saturday. Hoping for more of the same tomorrow - Going in for the sweater bunch group to work on my Bacardi Cardigan for my Mom.
