I highly recommend The Trim Buyer - the buttons are beautiful and seem to be very nice quality and they were only $6 for 5 buttons! And they arrived so fast.
While I was supposed to be at home finishing my coat, I was out galavanting around. I've really gotten into bike-riding lately. It feels so good on a crisp fall day to get all warmed up on the inside and feel the chill on your skin. And we have lots of hiking /biking trails in the area. We rode for an hour from Kensington to Bethesda to eat food at Taste of Bethesda. There were bands playing and, I had to help out. What I mean by that is- you know; someone has to get the party started. Many years ago, I played in bands and I know the band members really want folks to dance and have fun. So, what with all my Zumba training, you know, I can rise to the challenge. Oh, I may not have mentioned that I bought the Zumba DVD's and I've twisted Howie's arm into it, and he does the Zumba me sometimes.
After being all helpful to the band and everything, we wandered some more and found out, "Hey Governor O'Malley is here!". And he has a Secret Service buddy with him - can you pick out the Secret Service guy? :)
Then we decided to ride home on real roads with cars and everything because I was feeling confident. Conveniently, there was a nice bike shop and I bought a helmet. Woo hoo! I am a bicyclist now!
Next week is big time fun for me. I have taken off the whole week to clean out my sewing room, get organized and welcome my Wolf Dress Form into my studio. The coat is 95% finished so I'll wrap that up, too. Not sure what my next project will be .... but I am sure it will be something good!
I hope you are having some fun!
