Sew Buttons in Japan

Dear sweet Yuko from Japan sent me her picture of her Sew Buttons although she has yet to put the buttons on it. It's stitched on 32ct Lambswool linen with DMC threads. I am not sure which colours she chose but I do know that she used DMC 152 for the rose and the butterfly wings. I am looking to seeing her final 'final' finish. Thank you Yuko for letting me post your beautiful work on my blog.

Sew Buttons is still available *here* or by clicking on the CHARTS button on the sidebar. You may even find this chart, together with other iStitch designs at your LNS. Shop owners please note that you can order charts wholesale from Stitching Pretty *here*

Thank you for the emails and comments on my hem-stitching tutorial over on my Tutorials blog. I hope that it is clear and concise and you are able to follow it ok. Any feedback appreciated. Remember you can supersize the pictures by clicking on them twice. 

Thank you for visiting
Take care

    Thank you so much Carol posting my Sew Buttons on your blog!
    It was so fun to stitch and I love it so much.
    I will write what colour I used for the sampler on my blog later!
    I'm going to put my sewing machine out and will sew Sew Buttons!

    Hi Carol, I came across your blog via Yuko's , so I've been twice blessed, and
    I'm now following you on Pinterest!
    I love your blog~ and your work is fantastic.
    I'd love to join a Cross stitch class as my work is so shabby compared to others.
    I also would love to work on even weave .
    We have absolutely no classes here ( grr) have you any advice on how to become a more proficient stitcher?
    Thanks Carol,
    Anita xxx
