Betts Vidal's button collages
Sometimes you come across something that looks so right it fills you with excitement. That's how I felt when I saw Bette Vidal's button collages. She takes old buttons and sews them onto card with items that resonate with the buttons. Often the cards are themed. A little bit of perfect. I met Bette, whose main occupation is doll making, at the Knitting and Stitching show in London. Her enthusiasm and beautiful collages were, for me, the highlight of the visit.
