New Button Club

Well today is the day to announce that the new button club is ready, I have called it 'Fernhill' in memory of some wondeful hazelnut woods that my brother and I used to play in when we were young. 

Fernhill Banner small

If I close my eyes I can see the carpet of bluebells that apperared in late Spring, hang on here is a picture to help you with what I can see in my minds eye.

Hoopers woods

I can remember the noise of a startled pheasant, the quiet flap of an owls wings, the punguent aroma of deer. Living in the country meant fox hunts.....the trill of the fox hunters trumpet and the stampeed of horses, the clever fox knew if he hid in our garden that my mum would never let the huntsmen get him!

My new button club gathers together some of the animals and fauna from that sweet hazelnut wood from my childhood called 'Fernhill'.

The mystery 9 part pattern for the quilt is my gift to you with the purchase of one of my gorgeous (thanks to Lyn and Katie) handpainted wooden buttons from a registered store (all the store places are taken so this is the final listing). This is a limited edition collection of buttons so dont delay book in with one of these stores.
