Day Fifteen

After a tiring day at work, all I could do this evening was make a couple of embroidered buttons/magnets. I am finding it a bit of a challenge to get the design in the centre of the button.
 
The first one is an ancient alchemy symbol for horse dung. I am quite interested in signs and symbols and I think they make great embroidery subjects. The second one is just some freehand lazy daisies done in metallic thread.

I'd really want to try the lazy daisy flower embroidery on fabric buttons, it's so pretty and classy! BTW...I wasn't sure what "horse dung" meant so I looked up in my old dictionary...and ha! Now I know! You made me smarter today, Sam ;)

You should try it, chick chick, I bet you would make some lovely buttons! I'm glad I could contribute to your vocabulary, as I find "horse dung" very useful in conversation!
