Awhile ago the prompt was feather.
On 10/23 the prompt was glimmer.
The glimmer or glow from a burning candle can be relaxing.

Using beading thread, vintage buttons were stitched to a scrap of pleather.
I knotted the threads to the back and left the tails attached.
Taking some of the smaller buttons, a silver heart and using beading wire, I made a charm.
For stability I used a piece of cardboard on the back. The charm was looped through beading wire and glued between the cardboard and the front piece.
Over the cardboard I glued a piece of red, fake suede. The pin is a little heavy for the pin closures I have, so I will get a larger pin closure to glue to the back.
Once the pin closure is glued in place, the pin will be ready for gifting. I loved making this simple pin.

Every other month a member will select a theme word. Each member will create a quilt based on the theme. The quilts will measure 16 x 20, utilize any technique, but must have three layers. We've made a two year commitment and should end up with 12 quilts each. You may follow along by checking our progress on the Fiberactions blog. Our first theme will be introduced on November 15th.

I love it. It looks like an antique pair of scissors, I plan to frame it and hang it in my sewing space.
Thank you Jill, I'm honored to have your work in my collection.

And here it has been run through the printer and color was added with inks.
The little plastic pieces are made from meat packaging trays. After washing thoroughly- you can stamp onto the meat tray, cut out a shape and put in a low oven. The plastic will shrink. Once cooled color can be added. I had forgotten about these until I went digging in the treasure chest of 'stuff'.
I used family with my source prompt as family can be the source of many things depending on the day.....
