Day 93 : Stop the Spread

One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett - Day 93: Stop the Spread

Day 93 : Stop the Spread

As a year long challenge, it is important for me to create buttons for markers of things that happen. In my last challenge, there were sporting events to mark and things like that. I couldn't really let Covid-19 off the hook on this, especially as it is a marker not only for me, but for everyone in the world.

I don't want to cause anyone offence, and am certainly not being flippant by creating this button. 

I've chosen the blue cross to represent the medical staff around the world who are working so hard - be it in care or research regarding this. Most tend to wear blue at some point. And perhaps extra points for who can see what packaging the tag has come from?

I've used a No 39 ring and perle No 12 for the grey and blue. The little bits of the corona are made using the Au ver a Soie fine wool.
