Day 79 : Column

One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett - Day 79: Column

Day 79: Column

I am really quite pleased with this button - it is not what I had intended! This is needlework again, a combination of long and ordinary cross stitches, with some colonial knots in the gap that kept forming on one side. I am not sure why I decided to roll it, but I do like the way the texture of the stitches looks when rolled. 

Materials, the pink is a perle cotton no 12, and the purple is Au ver a Soie "Soie d'Alger" silk. I have decided it is high time I used some of my fancier threads. I do have a habit of saving lovely threads for "that" project - problem is, I have no idea what they project is! So why not this project?

This is stuffed with more fabric rolled up. I could have used a toggle bead, but the fabric works just fine.

Size (length x width) 
37 x 11mm / just under 1 1⁄2" x 7⁄8" / 51L (long) 
I am fairly certain there is only ever 1 measurement in lignes...
