more crochet buttons

Okay, so these are incredibly addictive...

I just put all of these on Etsy. This week I think I am going to try to do some smaller ones and string them up as beads.  First I need to make a trip to find more yarn suitable for crocheting. I tried 6 strand floss, but it doesn't work very well. It starts to separate.  I am thinking maybe sock weight wool or perle cotton or maybe some of the crochet cotton I have yet to get out. The first two I did with wool needlepoint threads that I recycled from half-used embroidery kits. I have a handful of tapestry wools to use yet too, and on the bigger buttons I think they'll work. The smaller buttons are going to require a finer thread.

The kids and I went to Wrath of the Titans today. Not too bad.  Also went out to the woods to hunt for morels, but didn't find anything, not even a hint that anyone else had been out.  Now they're talking snow for tomorrow. I wanted snow 3 months ago and didn't get it. Now I want to plant. I don't want snow now!
