A peek in my daily life and the things I like to do.

CQJP, block May
When I sewed the block I showed you yesterday, I also sewed a block from the same fabrics for the CQJP 2012 challenge. I finished the embroidery yesterday.
This block is 20 cm ( 8") as all my CQJP blocks are.
They will end up in a year journal.
Normally I am not a "button-cluster" person.
But on this block I found out that a cluster from tiny vintage buttons was just the right thing to sew on.
I like the patina which old mother of pearls buttons have.
They are all from my grandmothers button box.
The tiny button down has a small gold edge and three ! holes. I had to use my beading needle to sew it on. Wonder on what piece of clothes it has been in the past?
