View from the cliffs

The colours in this button look like the coast and sea around St. Ives. The yarn is called gimp and is a little tricky to sew but looks lovely and rugged !

Knot Gardens for sale

I am currently working on some new buttons based on my millefiore range. These are covered in french knots using lovely hand dyed silks on linen. This first is 'up the garden path', inspired by the little pathways on the crinoline lady embroideries popular during the 1930s. The thread is wool and silk and it measures 29mm across.
£12 + postage

The next are sets of old style ball buttons with hand stitched shanks on the back. They are about 8mm wide and these are in a silk that reminds me of the sand ornaments you used to buy on the Isle of Wight.

set of three £10 +postage

...more to follow.
