Incomparable Buttons are the most adorable, fabulous and fun ceramic buttons ever! They are all individually handmade and hand painted by an amazing group of South African crafters " The Sunshine Team " -ladies from the local community who have been trained in the art of button making. Their skills have provided them with economic empowerment and has uplifted their families.

                                           The Sunshine Team
Incomparable buttons are fully washable and dry cleanable. This is a first for ceramic buttons. With embellishments becoming more popular, the buttons are fun and inspiring for quilters, knitters, crafters and cross stitchers who are looking to add a unique finishing touch to their project.


To see more of their gorgeous buttons visit their website Incomparable Buttons and follow their blog ButtonMad.

At last this quilt is finished. I started this in 2007, I just had to make the 3D flowers and then quilt it, I can't remember why I hadn't finished it sooner. I'm happy that its done and on my bed. I love the colours, they make my bedroom feel so cosy and warm. The past two weeks have been very cold with snow on the Drakensberg mountains and it rained for a whole week.Too cold to sew, my fingers were frozen so I spent my days snuggled under quilts listening to Rural Bliss by Lou Wakefield and Noah's Ark by Barbara Trapido, did some reading and slept a lot.

                                88" x 88"  ( 224 cm)

Fun playing with my GO! Baby; so excited, no time to iron scraps.

We were at the Pavilion shopping centre on Sunday afternoon, my husband wanted to get something from the music shop. We saw a huge crowd at the book store, well I had to have a nosey. It was Dr Rey - Dr 90210, promoting his skin care products and latest book. I managed to get a photo on my cell phone.
