Button Block #17

I wish I could tell you how much I enjoy stitching on this little button blocks:

Button Block 17

I'm completely lost in my own little world when I'm stitching on these! This one is complete now. The button in the bottom left is an antique hand-painted porcelain button. Victorian women used to buy blank porcelain buttons and then hand-paint them. Scott's mother bought me this button and it's one that I've been "saving". Again, there's no point in hiding it away in a box when I could be enjoying it's beauty so on the block it went!

Oh, can you find the little "Bluebird Of Happiness" on this block? He's near the top. Take a look and see if you can find him!

I started on this one last night and stitched on it a bit more this morning:

My stitching doesn't show well so far. This will be remedied with beads and sequins. Like I need an excuse to add glitter!

If you're new to my blog, and you would like to see all of the button blocks that I've stitched so far, you can find them here on my Flickr site.

When this one is done, I'm thinking of doing another Comfort Cat Doll to send to Pat. I haven't sent her any for the Comfort Doll Project in quite awhile. They stitch up pretty quickly so perhaps I'll stitch 2.

That porcelain button is really pretty...as is the whole block. I like the way you've scattered the sequins on this one. Did you paint the lace flowers?

You are really cranking these out...number 17, amazing! And each one is beautiful...wow!

This Number 17 is especially lovely. Your joy in stitching it shows through!

I love the purples and greens. That looks so cheerfully spring-like. Are you getting any real spring yet?

I love your button blocks, Pam! I noticed your post on Sharon B's blog, where you said it was a great way to use up some of your huge button stash, so I thought I should come over and see what you've been up to. You are so clever in matching colours; the purple shades blend in beautifully. I spotted the bluebird! (Wasn't hard, lol)
