But first, the Foliage Foto of the Day.
I recently discovered — as I was getting dressed for the first of the recent reunions — that my chosen shirt was missing a button right at bust level. Since we were away from home and I had not brought extra clothes, I kinda had to go with it. Happily, the shirt is quite generous so there was no gappage.
Last week I dumped out The Button Box to see if I had seven matching buttons in the right size and appropriate color.
No luck with black buttons, but all was not lost.
I checked the inside of the side seams of the blouse before starting this project, hoping that the makers had included the usual extra button. Nope.
As I was sewing on the last button — the one at the bottom of the placket — guess what I discovered. Yup, an extra button. What yahoo puts the extra button in a non-standard place?
…and there you have my latest rant about something so minuscule no one else cares.
