I’ve been holding back on one goodie from Stitches West: these hand-painted cat buttons.
While I was going ga-ga over the fiber blends and colors at the Argosy Yarns booth, Melissa picked these up for me. Rather than using them on a garment, I’m thinking of designing a sampler to embroider around them.
Susan Clarke Originals has a wonderful web site, replete with cats and bunnies and dogs and berries and birds and needlework motifs (including knitting, of course). Warning: visits to this site can be hazardous to one’s bank balance.
