an **almost** finish

Ohhh.. I was so excited! I was going to finish stitching a project in one weekend!! Woo hoo! And I guess technically I did-but the only carrot nose button I had was tooo big. So here is my nose-less snowman.  Fortunately I had just placed an order with 123 Stitch (one of the only places I could find Kreinik #8 braid #3280), so I called them this morning and added a carrot nose to my order.. I actually need a few but I guess I will get them as I need them.  I wish someone here locally had them- I mean Michael's has all other kinds of buttons, why can't they have carrot noses? I'm sorry for complaining.  So here is my almost finish!
In case I forget later- a San Man Originals design-stitched on Silkweaver 32 ct lugana(I think?)- color is Charizma- with recommended DMC threads. The snowflake button is a San Man button. Anyone know of any good button companies besides Just Another Button Co? I like their buttons but I like my carrot noses a little rounder-not so flat.. hee hee..  When it's finished I will try to get a better pic- the fabric is actually different shades of purple and a little blue- it's really pretty!

Hey Tracey! What size of noses do you need? I have made some carrot buttons from time to time for snowman ornaments.I can make a few to send you, just let me know. I have used 123stitch for stuff several times. Isn't Joanne great?

So cute! I can't be of much help on the carrot noses, nothing local near me either.
