Cotton CQ- More motifs

Thought I would share more work from my cotton CQ.

The top photograph is a motif that I made up to fit around the rectangular button. I think it is rather vintage looking.

The second pic is Brazilian Dimensional Embroidery using pearl cotton. I think I prefer this better instead of using the rayon thread. For some reason I never really liked the sheen of the rayon thread.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!



  1. Very pretty! I think the motif done in perle cotton is very appropriate for this project.

    I'm not a stitching purist, in that I follow patterns exactly or always using specified threads. That's what makes stitching so pleasurable for me, because then it becomes our personal creation.

    Once we learn the basics, we can do whatever we want to do, and it's then the creative juices really start flowing! :-)

  2. I really like your idea of stitching around the button. Clever!

  3. WOW! Love that flower... and the treatment of the square button is great.

  4. Oooooo I love that flower Lillian!
