off with the old and on with the new!

I have finally done something I’ve been meaning to do for ages . . . I have finally changed the buttons on my favourite cardie ^^.  I suspect we all have a favourite cardigan. Mine is a boring beige colour but it’s my favourite because it’s lovely and long, comes to mid-thigh and keep me really warm in the winter.  It has always looked a bit old-fashioned, probably because of the colour, and the original buttons never really helped.

I therefore cut off the old buttons today, and I have sewn on four buttons that ‘Titia bought for me this Spring.  They certainly liven up my old cardie ^^

I also got my darning needle out and repaired damage that cats cause by pulling threads . . . so old favourite cardie has just been given a new lease of life and is all set to keep me snug and warm this winter.

    • thank you ^^ I love buttons too, have so many in my button box but I usually think they’re too pretty to use. However, for once, I have put some to good use.
