I just want to thank everyone for all the great input on the controversial button issue. It looks like the round filigree buttons win hands down. Luckily – they were on clearance! Tomorrow I am going to post three photos of the coat one with all round, one with all bean-shaped and one with all square and take another poll. Because despite popular opinion, and despite the fact that I am generally against large, square, functionally-challenged buttons, the square are my current favorite. I may have hypnotized myself by staring at them for so long. Please stay tuned for “hot button issue” part 2. (luckily, all this indecision postponed the buttonholes.)
If you are wondering about the unseasonable photo above – I am just trying to remember how much I love summer as I sit and weave in my “sweat shop”.
