Here are some of the most recent ( and finished) handwork projects I've done. I think I'll call them the farm & forest buttons. My interest in these started when I couldn't for the life of me embroider a chicken head, not super happy with this one either really, and I thought these buttons would be good practice. I looked in vintage story books nabbed from my mom's place ( sorry mom ) wanting the portraits to look like old illustrations. I really love the way the sheep turned out and the bear. I have a goose, wolf, fox & a mouse in the works. Now what should these go on? esty or hoard?
