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.
