So...I was making buttons for coronation garb over the weekend and here are pictures of them.
The gold buttons are two layers of fabric: one linen and one unknown to me but feels metallic.
All are self stuffed buttons and about the size of a pea.
I love making buttons..they are quick, adorable and make for a nice touch and show of handwork on a piece of garb.

So I am researching embroidered book covers. I have decided to post each book and the information I find out about it here so that I can keep track of it and share, for others interested in book bindings. I by no means know everything so if anyone has more information on any cover I post or if I post any information that may be incorrect, please let me know and give me the source as well.
On the lower side, on a groundwork of gold similar to that on the upper cover, is a design of the Crucifixion. Our Saviour wears a red garment round the loins, and round his head is a red and yellow nimbus, his feet being crossed in a manner often seen in illuminations in ancient manuscripts.
Here is the pics of my yurt door. I wanted to include my mom in this project since she was wonderful in always watching the boys for me when I had to go to the yurt building weekends, which were many and all in a row.
