Almost Done!

I had a good few hours yesterday to work on this:

Purple Painted Lady

I so much wanted a pretty button cluster on this but no matter what I tried, it just didn't work. I really thought white vintage Mother Of Pearls would have looked great but they didn't. I tried grey MOP's, black glass buttons, rhinestone buttons and even some pretty yet simple shirt buttons. They just didn't work.

So instead, I did another beaded button frame to showcase a fancy button. This one is Lacey Glass Button that I bought a few years back at a flea market. It came in a little bag that had several pretty glass buttons. I thought it was a nice piece to use considering the lady theme.

Also, if you look closely, I changed the "brooch" on the ladie's collar. I had a tiny glass purple flower bead there. While poking around in my button boxes, I found some tiny cameo buttons. It really looked great so I removed the flower button and added this one instead.

I just have a bit more to do. The first thing I'll do this afternoon is add my cat. I've decided to stitch him in white in the bottom right-hand corner and I'll add some small pink flower buttons. I'm not sure it will need anything else after that or not.

I will have an update for you tomorrow.

You are right - the cameo is soooo much more appropriate.
Thanks for sharing all your work with us during the year.
