More twinkling

I had so much fun making my Twinkle quilt, that I decided I wasn't ready for my star to go super nova just yet. I've got a few more twinkle ideas. Plus, that's the way I work. One idea tends to lead to another. Trying one possibility makes me wonder what would happen if I added this or changed that. I don't think that's particularly unusual. It does sometimes hamper my ability to repeat an image. It's sort of like reading a book. I may love a book and thoroughly enjoy reading it, but I can't think of a time that I went back and reread a book.
No repeats, but I'm pretty good with variation on a theme.
I love these vintage buttons. There's a great resale store(euphemism for junk shop) near my house. I'm torn about how I feel about going there. On the one hand, I bought a bag full of amazing buttons there the other day for $5, but the place is such a wreck. Nothing is actually sorted. It's just piled up. I went there with Abi and she said that you couldn't work in the place if you were heavy set because the aisles are so narrow and everything is so precariously placed that you would inevitably knock stuff over. It's a bit creepy, but we go there anyway.
