One of the (many) things on my list to buy during the Heartland Shop Hop was an assortment of buttons. Happily, I struck gold at the very first shop on our tour, Stitch On in Lawrence KS. I knew what buttons I needed for this little HIH bell pull, but I made a couple changes and I like the buttons I chose even more. The sailboat had two little bluebird types around it in the model, but Stitch on had little seagulls! And fishies! I love ‘em.
Extra cute buttons! I know, I know. I’m going to change those threads to different colors that blend better with the fish.
And here it is, hanging inside and a bit faded by the flash.
You all may laugh at this, but today was the first time I’ve spent a full day of work away from the house in a few years. I’ve picked up another bookkeeping job and at this point I can’t do it from home, so I have to work in this fellow’s very busy body shop. I’ll tell you…I’m tired. I’m not used to being around noise and work-type people all day. Sheesh. I had to be nice. And respond to conversation. Completely not me. I keep telling myself to break out of this hermit-like existence I’ve created, but man – I’m exhausted. And hungry. Time to go throw together some leftovers!
