button swap

November 4th, 2007

Michelle of greetingarts.com organized an embroidered button swap and I got my package a couple weeks ago. I really like how each button shows off a different stitch. I know it wasn’t intentional, but it’s a nice sampling. I never thought of cross stitch as being so classy, or using french knots to create a shag rug look. They are all fantastic and I can’t wait to put them on coats and sweaters and pillows and whatever else I can find.

    Loved the robot! The heart is punched needle work, not french knots.
