10 Minute Drill #9 - Memory Keeper


Today I pulled these out.  They were purchased a long time ago at an estate sale around the corner from my house.  One or two of them will be used on the Memory Keeper woven envelope I've begun.  With some ribbon or cloth to help keep it closed.

This one was tucked in among them.
I really like it!
One row shy of a nine patch!  Ha!

Wonderful treasure! I love the glow from the light. It could be a nine patch but instead of squares, it is squares and rectanges. :-)

I have a couple of buckles like that somewhere. Have had them for many years, but used one a patchwork belt I made.

Love that button with 6 holes!

That is some cool stash -- that button is so fine!

Thanks for the comments everyone...the button is the best of all! I also got 4-5 collections of little buttons - each set threaded on a loop of regular thread.
