Take It Further Challenge - January - Day 4

I started the beading on this yesterday:


I still have a way to go on it. I want to add some pansies to the right of the tea lady and of course, it needs some butterflies.

I remembered that I had these vintage dyed Mother Of Pearl buttons that Scott's mom gave me a few years ago:

Purple Buttons

On one hand, I hate to take them off the card because they are old and the card is complete. On the other hand, I've been saving these for something special and I know this project is perfect for showcasing them. I will use them because they aren't doing me any good sitting in a drawer. I do think they're perfect for this block.

Someday, I want to come sit on the sofa and watch you work. =) This is a beautiful block, and I love the seams you chose. I think the buttons will be fabulous, and look forward to seeing just how you put them on the block!

I have that dilemma too sometimes but usually opt for using the item instead of storing it. It just gets stored in a new decorative way on a piece of handwork!
