Rare Coates box of buttons




Buttons and patches and the cold wind blowing,
The days pass quickly when I am sewing.




Good morning all and I hope you had a great weekend.

My weekend started well as there was a knock on the door and the postman stood there with a parcel for me.

I had bought on Ebay a rare box that was from Coates the stitching company and it was full of vintage mother of pearl buttons.....

As you know if you are a regular reader of my blog and have been reading for a good while now that Coates has a special place in my heart.  My lovely friend and neighbour who died last year used to work for them and was a mine of information to be and always interested in anything stitchery related.  I miss him terribly and wish also that I could take the box round and he could probably told me more about it as well.  I like to think of him looking down upon my purchase with a smile....

Today I am going to be continuing with getting my mermaid picture ready to stitch and also I am going to be cutting out the letters for my Homespun Stitchworks banner....

My day is sorted as when the light fades I will be going through my little box and sorting all the buttons to see what I have.

What a happy day, what ever you are doing I hope yours is happy also!

Happy Stitching!


This is the little Coates box.




This is the inside of the box with all the stunning buttons 
for me to sort through later.....
