Day 92 : Rainbow

One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett - Day 92 : Rainbow

Day 92 : Rainbow

Today's button is inspired by all of the lovely rainbow pictures the children here in the UK are putting up in their windows. We live in the country, and are probably the youngest in our little cluster, so it wasn't until we went into the unit for our packing and postal run that we saw these in Grantham. And they did bring a smile as we drove by and noticed them. One house had a window full - I wonder if they have that many children in the house - or just one really artistic child?

I used a white background to represent white paper. The white is a No 8 perle, while the colours are Au Ver a Soie's fine D'aubusson tapestry wool - which we have just finished photographing for the shop. A small range will be live this week, and if it proves popular, we hope to increase it. Of course, I just had to try it out... I've also used a No 39 ring.
