I haven't stitched another CQ seam, and this being the Labor Day holiday, probably won't get to it until tomorrow. I thought I would share with you some of my buttons. They are like miniature works of art and can be so inspiring, design-wise. This is one of my favorite enamel buttons.
One year my mother came out to visit me from Georgia. I told her I had The Most Beautiful Button In the World and I wanted to show it to her. I proudly went and got it and with much fanfare, presented it to her. Her appreciative response? It was, "I have one just like it!" Blew the air right out of my sails. It turns out that I got mine from my Grandmother(her mother) and so did she. We both had a laugh. Anyway, I just loooove Art Nouveau and the flowiness (is that a word?) of this design, so I stitched a simplified version of it in beads. You may have seen it on Flickr here.
