snowballz buttons revisited

I finished two buttons over the weekend, and the plastic self cover buttons came in the mail, so here how they turned out!  I have to say that I like the aluminum buttons better. The plastic just doesn't seem to work as well, and the backs didn't snap on as tightly. I might save the plastic buttons for another project with thinner fabric, and get myself some of the metal buttons to work with for the remaining snowballz buttons.

Today I was sketching, trying to come up with some new, looser cross stitch designs that would have more of a painterly feel to them, with more gestural line and blocked in color.  Here is what I worked on this afternoon...
We'll see how it all comes together in the next couple days!
