My first attempt (second photo)

On September 21, 2002, I attended a workshop taught by Judy Hendrix, who taught our EGA chapter How to Make a Beaded Button. I have made TWO. Our chapter is having a repeat workshop on September 17th .... and I was asked to Assist teaching.

I have three more buttons prepared to embellish with seed beads. It is a very interesting project & I get a kick out of seeing everyone make up their own - unique - buttons. Once the buttons are decorated, a pin backing is attached. Additonal link in sidebar ...

Your buttons are beautiful. What a wonderful look. Thay will make a beautiul peice of jewelry. My mom make beautiful beaded buttons and has them on her purses, jackets and uses the to "knot" her scarves. So many wonderful ways they will be used. You may just start getting "addicted" to making them.

Wow, you've been busy this weekend! :D

Love the fancy beaded buttons and all of your stitching finishes. I have many Mill Hill ornament kits awaiting my retirement in several decades. At which point I probably won't care about Christmas as much. ;)

The needlebook will look great when it's finished and I can't wait to see what you do with the M. Garry design. BTW, I agree that it should be on a darker linen with all of those lovely light colors.

Enjoy your meeting tonight and make sure you post your sale purchases tomorrow!
