How is everyone? Very good I hope.
I've been busy plodding along, sinuses still an issue but have at least started on some alternative therapies to lessen the issues, as you do! I am at least on the ENT waiting list, so hopefully it won't be too long. Of course, covid has increased waiting times hugely, and I haven't even heard about my foot yet.
Enough of that!
I have still been busy, even if I didn't want to be in front of a camera - taking lots of step by step photos for the next book. This is the first in a series we've planned for quite a while - each book with a different subject matter, but all "Making Buttons".
There will be some old favourites, some new ideas, and everything in between in this series - a way to get designs I've worked or discovered over the years out there, as well as updating the old DVDs we did (let's face it, who watches DVDs these days?).
This series will be aimed at everyone, while the 16th & 16th century buttons book (The Historical Button Maker Vol 2) that I am also working on is probably more specialist. That one too is moving along at a much better pace now too, so some times not being able to do the everyday things can be a bit of a blessing :)
So watch this space - hopefully everything will be back from the printers for the end of the month for the first - "Dorset Ring Buttons".
And in the meantime - Good luck England!
