New Giveaway, New Winner

irst I must attend to some unfinished business. The needlepouch from one of our previous giveaways has not been claimed. It's too sad to see it here unclaimed, so I've randomly chosen a new winner... (have you ever used a random number generator? They are really fun.) 
Congratulations Kate! 

Oh, my Gosh!!! I love your designs and to think that 
I could win a give away of something you have 
made and designed. Please enter me in you drawing.

And for our new giveaway, three glass fused buttons, shanks attached in back, with beautiful foil center. These are about 3/4" each and can make any simple garment, bag, needlepoint design, really stand out.  


I LOVE using glass embellishments on needlepoint.  There is something so intriguing about the combination of the transparent glass and the dense fibers.  It brings another layer of interest to a design.  

The shanks on these buttons could easily fit into a hole on your canvas to be attached at a point of interest. How about stitching a strip of basketweave, oh, I'd say 1.25" in width and about 6-7" in length.  Fold back the excess canvas, whipstitch around the border and attach the buttons at equal distances. Then attach the whole thing to the front/middle of a plain sweater, or even tee shirt. It would be delicious!

Enter the giveaway by leaving a comment with an idea on how you would use these glass beauties.

LOVE the buttons -- Noticing Nina's shoes, wouldn't those buttons look fantastic as bling on shoes, and then use the third for a matching necklace!! Who ever heard of needing to match her shoes to her jewelry :-)

I would love to go into the draw, if that's OK - my flatmate's favourite colour is green, and I have an idea in mind for her that would just be perfect! And if I don't win, I'm now going to have to go shopping to find something similar so my dream can become a reality! :P

Orna, you are too generous! The buttons are lovely and would add an elegant touch to any textile art piece. Hmmm... I am already designing just looking at them.
