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.

    1. 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!

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

    1. 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!

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

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