Pingle rings

As one who likes to embroider on the go....in the garden ,on the train, in the car..... I have needed somewhere safe for my needles ! I usually end up wearing them and then forgetting so when I was making some of my pin cushion buttons recently I wondered if  rings would work and they do ! I was given a lovely little stash of old Liberty print remnants so here they are ! On etsy packaged in their own little domes..£10

and here are the buttons. These will be at the Knit and Stitch show in October.

p.s. if any of you want to see a spectacular stumpwork casket pop along to The Queens Gallery to see this

..so many leaves !! It doesn't get out very often and has to be seen to be believed. There are also some beautiful tudor jackets in the show , french knot heaven.

..some brooches being made. This set are inspired by the middles of anenomes (and all the lovely hand dyed threads that I have !)

In the garden

If the slugs didn't eat them I would have delphiniums in my garden.....so I embroider them instead !
There's a little garden of buttons going on to Etsy this week . I'm working my way through my range of 1930's inspired embroidered buttons , the delphiniums and bellis are in two colours and the hollyhocks...

..... in this heatwave they are all that is flowering in my garden.
