WIPW - Beaded Button

For the Work In Progress Wednesday I can report on

Crazy for Crazy

where I have picked out a purple button from my stash, and made a beaded Dorset Button.

These will be placed on the block later.

Furthermore I have added Whipped Running Stitch and Herringbone Stitch to two areas.


Progress is slow, I blame the heatwave.

Considering the heat, that piece is looking cool.

Thanks!

Thank you.
I have to control myself; button making is so enjoyable.

I hope there are no sweat stains on the block, if there are they will turn into salty crystals and will indeed give the piece a cool look!

I want to add a wee bit more red-purple to add some pizzazz. I am now pondering how and where to add it.

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you Shirlee. Dorset buttons are so fun to make, I have to restrain myself. I am now thinking of adding something buttony without the button!

Beautiful stitches added! Your button is gorgeous.
I enjoy your work Queenie!

Love the button!

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you. I have added another bit of embroidery since I posted the WIPW report. I'll show that next week.

It was a bit tricky to add the beads, but it will be fun to make other versions of the Dorset Button.

Love that Dorest Button.

Queeniepatch said...

I like weaving stitches, webbed circles and so , so this form of 'embroidery' is great.

I can certainly see you are having fun with your stitches. Love, love, love the Dorset Button, and your Whipped Running and Herringbone stitches really are so stunning! You do have wonderful design ideas, Queenie!

Thank you , Barbara. It is fun to use TAST and SSS stitches for these blocks.
