Time passed. I procrastinated.... I decided yesterday that at least one of my WIPs had to be made into a finished item and so the mitts were retrieved from their basket where they had been patiently waiting.
In hindsight I delayed because I was a little intimidated by the button edging and thumb hole completion. I needn't have worried! Of course, the wonderful Sandra of Cherry Heart had written the tutorial so thoroughly that I felt guided through these slightly wriggly and tighter stitches.
They are nearly complete. I am on the final step of choosing the buttons to fasten the sides together.
Ooooh decisions, decisions. How I love buttons. This is such a nostalgic joy for me. I remember loving my Mother's big button tin as a child and sorting through the piles to select the perfect one.
I decided to go with odd buttons and just chose various shades of blue, grey and white initially. Then I passed a happy half hour playing with button placement and choice.
Until the final choice gave complete satisfaction.
I'm off to sew these lovelies on. They'll have a Ta Dah moment later this week.
I hope you are enjoying a few moments of happiness this fine day and I will be shortly wearing my Mitts even though it's nearly 20 degrees outside!!! Take care,
