While I have been working on new cross stitch designs, I have been trying to find new and fun ways to embellish the work.  I like to include buttons and beads and sequins in my pattern packs, and have in the past used a lot of found beads and buttons giving each person's piece a one of a kind finish. I had thought about making ceramic buttons, but they can get too heavy. So today, I played a bit with wooden tiles and my own ephemera and graphics on them.

1 1/4 x 1 1/4" tiles

1 3/8" x 1 3/4" tiles
They have been fun to experiment with, and I will post pictures of them again when I have finished with the varnishing. 

I hope to have the next Snowballz design done as well by the end of the weekend. I found this really neat bag of beads at a flea market, and I plan on embellishing this design with those little bits of colorful glass. It has been a productive weekend so far!
