Getting Back on Track

I finally had a great torch session yesterday... the glass beads are still sitting in the kiln.

I made a special bead for my niece, a bunch of matching beads for a tutorial I'm writing (you know how I LOVE making matching beads...NOT!) and a similar one to the matchy matchies... And it didn't suck. Which is progress!

I'm still listing a few new items every day from my overflowing bead bowl. I hate overwhelming the fan page where all my listings feed, that why I'm slow about it.

This button is the latest addition:

I love to use these on a knitted scarf. I work on my knifty knitter and drop a few stitches in the middle of the width about 6"  past the center. Finish the scarf, sewing in any loose threads and then attach the handmade bead. I love to use a button on my scarves to keep it up around my neck when I'm hiking.

What do you like to use handmade buttons for???

The button is gorgeous! I think it would look great on a knit hat. Wish I could knit.
