Chapter forty-one – BaBa buttons

previously on The grey tailI know, I know. my startitis is hopeless.

so what is it that I’m going to add to Manu‘s Marquoir? well, during the summer I asked Elisabetta if she could fulfill this crazy request, and she did. masterfully!

I gave her BaBa‘s pictures and she gave me these in return!

I’m so amazed, really. I knew she was good but when I saw these I had stars in my eyes. 🙂 thank you, thank you, thank you Eli!

in the meantime here is another of Manu‘s designs I’ve been working on during the summer, StitchME, which came with another of Elisabetta’s wooden buttons.

  2. Wow, she did an amazing job with the buttons! It’s a very good likeness of Taras.
    I love all of Nina’s linens too. I just won some in a Facebook giveaway that she had and they’re wonderful!
