I Like Your Buttons!”

Back in April I dipped into Catherine’s button jar and sewed some colourful buttons on my cardigan.

I’ve been wearing this selfsame cardigan around town for the last week, now that the days have turned chilly, and two or three times a day someone says “I like your buttons!”

I couldn’t figure out why I was getting compliments on my buttons now, but not in the spring, and I realized it was because in the spring I wasn’t leaving my house at all, so nobody actually ever saw the buttons until now.

The wonderful thing about being complimented about the colourful buttons on my cardigan is that it’s a compliment for me being me.

Clicking through to your April post with photo, I realise I missed it at the time. So for me too it's a new sight, so I'm adding a virtual "I like your buttons". (while typing this I think I'd rather like a 'like your butttons' like button. ;) )
