Yes!!! I have (finally!) conquered the sweater! I had almost finished it Friday, but needed to buy buttons. Buttons are one of those tiny little details that often throw me over the edge….The last time I bought buttons like these, I wasn’t paying close attention and when I got home, I realized they were PLASTIC! Blech!!!
While Mark and I spent a little time in Canandaigua last evening ( I just *had* to have a little cup of Abbott’s Pumpkin Custard….tis the season, after all!) I remembered I needed buttons. I relunctantly went into JoAnn’s Fabrics, hoping that “perhaps” they might have something acceptable.
As I looked through tons of buttons, I did find some “vintage” buttons by La Mode that might do. I was looking for real leather buttons though, and when I saw the JHB display, hope welled up. As I turned the swiveling display, my eyes lit upon *exactly* the buttons I wanted! And, to add to my surprise, these buttons were actually made in the USA! What a pleasant surprise!
Now….what shall I make next?
