No, I'm not going to write about sewing buttonholes, because I don't enjoy those very much. Rather, I was remembering today about how sometimes, little sprays of flowers pinned to a shirt or dress are called 'buttonholes'. It seems quite old-fashioned and lovely. At the tropical wedding I went to last month, we all had buttonholes made from frangipani and gardenia flowers. Here is a little anemone buttonhole (brooch) I made using some very small stitches, grey linen and a metal frame pin in which to put the work. It's part of my shop update today. Imagine having real-life anemones (miniature ones I suppose) pinned to your cardigan! That would be a good conversation-starter.
