Buttons, braids and books

It was too cold and snowy to go outside, so I spent the weekend indoors doing interesting things with string. (Also too dangerous – there was a 9-car pileup here in white-out conditions, and a 60-something car pileup in eastern PA.)

Needle-lace buttons…


… and matching fingerloop braids…


… as decorative book closures.


The book and its compatriots will be appearing on Etsy in the near future. Though I’m sure I’ll have to keep one for, ah, testing purposes. (What color do you think would complement my pretty red pen?)

    I would suggest a bright greenish blue. Really really bright. :)
