I have been saving pieces of my handwoven pieces for years knowing that I would use them someday...So here they are with my handmade buttons! Made my buttons over at Mary Harding's studio who is a dear friend and lives nearby. (https://www.etsy.com/shop/maryhardingjewelry)
All backed with felt...button sewn on...and a hair clip! Clip on your bag, your hair, whatever!
I have been weaving for 24 years and selling for almost as long! I have slowed down my weaving since my cancer diagnosis and subsequent Whipple surgery but still weave on and off during the day when I have the energy! I currently sell my work on www.barefootweaver.etsy.com.
I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in December, 2009. Had Whipple surgery in January 2010 and have had clear CT scans since! We are hopeful for a long and happy life!
As an update...I had a valve replacement in May 2016 and apologize for not answering comments or blogging! I am off to NYC February 15, 2017 for surgery on the 16th to remove a little spot of lung cancer. Hopefully recovery will be uneventful and I will be back at weaving soon!
