329 : Dot

Day 329 - Dot : One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett

Day 329 : Dot

Goodness, my ability to create wonderful names for my buttons is sadly lacking at the moment! Sorry about that. For this button I had an idea that using silk along the outer circles would create a sort of soutache look, which has worked, but not how I had envisaged it. Next time I will use much finer silk, I think that would give a better effect. 

And yes, there is often a next time. Because of the challenge and trying to create a different button, you don't always get to see the second or third try if it isn't vastly different. That would be boring for you!

Mixed day today, I hope that yours has been very good, not so-so 😊

Day 328 - Forest

Day 328 - Forest

A simple doodle button zwirnknopfe button today. What you can't see here is that the red thread is a fine wool - I decided to play about with textures. It really works in real life, adds a nice contrast of dull and shiny with the perle cotton. So I am quite pleased with it. 

I'm shattered today! Must be last week catching up with me. But the day has been bright (but freezing - we can't be let off that lightly, lol) so we shouldn't moan.

Goodness, Bob Mortimer is hilarious. Watching repeats of Would I lie to you as I write this and can't stop laughing. If you need cheering up, I highly recommend any episode with this man as a guest.

Day 327 : Doodle Hearts

Day 327 : Doodle Hearts

I really love the almost sketchy feel of this button. I think it would look pretty cool with black outlines too - a bit like tattoos. The extra doodle lines did really relax the original woven hearts, which are actually even and structured (from my Woven Motif booklet). 

Finished my tassel, ready for the post tomorrow. Now to try to unwind, for an evening. And catch up on my emails. Good job my Mom is very understanding. 

Hope your Monday is good everyone!
