I’ve known our family friend Madge since I was a little girl, and even after I moved away we’ve kept in touch and I try and write letters to her as often as I can. She’s always been a knitter, but at the age of 93 has had to give it up now. Madge has the most amazing button collection (which she has kindly given to my Mum) and when I went to York last week we had a good rummage!
There are some really old buttons in there! Loads of them are so pretty, and I think we could have spent all day admiring them!
Mum kindly said that I could take these ones home 🙂 I’m so pleased with them – and I’ll probably store them up for a while until I decide what to use them for! In the meantime I can just admire them.
