Here is a little progress on my sewing room project. I have finished stitching the measuring tape and the scissors. I don't know if you can see them in this picture, but the pattern has five buttons above the tape measure. I am ready to start stitching the buttons - I have a few buttons from my button supply to give me some color ideas. Actually, some of these buttons are the perfect size to just sew onto this project. I could do that rather than embroider buttons...
You might notice that I ended up stitching the scissor handles in orange. This was after trying to decide which color would look best - I want to thank you everyone for your comments and ideas on my last post :) I went with the orange and I think it looks wonderful!
And speaking of orange:
I wanted to share these pictures from my blooming zinnia. Isn't this a beautiful color?
