Button? Button? Who’s Got The Button?
Or buttons actually and that would me me! Do you know what that means? It is time to sew the buttons on my Topeka sweater. Of course there is a button story to tell. It isn’t very exciting but it is pretty typical for me. I went to Joann Fabric’s to pick out some buttons for Topeka. I knew before I went that I needed a number of buttons, more about that when I show you the sweater later this week, and my local Joann’s tends to have a limited number of buttons on the wall o’ buttons. I don’t know if they just sell so many buttons that they can’t keep up or if they just fail at ordering. As I stood in front of the wall I looked at the blue buttons starting at the top of the wall. There were some navy buttons that I liked but didn’t really scream “THESE ARE THE BUTTONS”. I worked my way down the wall trying buttons that were OK but many didn’t fit through the little YO buttonholes. I finally spotted this button at the very bottom of the wall and it just sang out that these are the buttons for Topeka. Unfortunately there were only 2 cards of buttons. I looked through all the other sizes hoping that maybe someone had put one pack in the wrong place but no. There were only 2 cards. That left me with 2 options. I could pick out something that wasn’t exactly what I wanted or I could drag The Husband and N who were promised a quick trip to Joann’s to another Joann’s a few towns away. Yeah, they were really good sports about the extra time and I got the buttons I love. Now I have to sew them on.
