Embellishing sewing kit with beads and hand embroidery......

beads added around silk yoyos and feather stitch

Turquoise bead added, right, blue beads on left....

Feather stitch added here.

 I've had time to get some embroidery and beads added. The big turquoise bead went in and the little blue Czech beads, which I really like for the sparkle.

I get attached to my embellishments so I spend some time making sure they go in just the right place. The glass crystal vintage button was hard for me to "give up", rare and well made. It sets off the silk yoyos with the white netting. More embellishing to come.

Crystal vintage button added to yoyos here.


  1. I am sure the buttons have found a great home on your hussif. Or do they prefer to be in a jar in a cupboard...
    The combination of glass and turquoise is lovely.

  2. You are right, I'm sure "they" prefer to shine like they were meant to.
    Thanks Queenie.

  3. I know exactly what you mean about not wanting to give up precious embellishments. I have a couple of beautiful blue Czech buttons that I bought several years ago and never did put them on the project because I liked them too much. They're still in my stash!

  4. I have a tiny box of special glass buttons that I will most likely never use. I just like to take them out and look at them every so often...
