  5. I couldn't take my eyes off the tortoise's shell. What great buttons it would make - fake I hasten to add. The design is so beautiful and I have a vintage coat that I've been thinking of updating the buttons of but didn't know with what. Thanks to your pic, i'm pretty sure I do now.

  61. I like turtles. My neighboor has one wandering in the garden. Sometimes, on hot sunny days, when he going next to our fence I give him some water. Like I give my flowers water. He likes it, he is waiting for it, and stands perfectly still when 'I give him some water'.

  62. Ina of Tambani in South Africa alerted me about ButtonMad. How I wish you were here too! For the give away I would love to nominate a very special friend Wilma who took me to a quilt show in Morden, MB, while I was visiting for the first time our two only and most beautiful grandchildren in Canada. She made the afternoon so special for me and I would like to 'give' her something to thank her in this way because she is so creative and makes such beautiful things.
    All the best with ButtonMad! Clara from South Africa (clara@waagmeester.co.za)
