When I saw this month's theme was tradition I immediately thought of my Grandmas. Family traditions are among the first things you learn as a child and it's like learning a family language.
My Nonna taught me to love craft. She was always making something, absolutely always!
My Grandma taught me to collect things. She collected stamps, postcards, buttons... just to name a few of her collections.
All the pearl buttons sewn on this pin cushion are from my Grandma's and Mum's button collection!
The pattern for the cross stitching on this button pincushion is from Cross Stitcher magazine. If you like cross stitching, this magazine is fantastic. They feature all the latest trends and there are always a lot of great projects.
Linking up with the super fun Le Challenge!
Oops, I was a minute late linking up and missed out! I'm off to visit all the entries...
I will be linking up with 2015 Finish-Along over at Adrianne's On the Windy Side as this is my goal number 2 for Q2.
P.S. Speaking of traditions, I've always admired Pearly Kings and Queens. I also admire whoever had the patience to sew all those pearl buttons on!
