Don't you just love when someone has a good idea?
I don't usually even deny that I'll try it too?
They always say that it is a compliment. .
I'll be sewing many more of this apron pattern. . .
I've a few girlfriends left who turn 50 after me.
Every now and then. . .I look through my mom's buttons . ..
some on cards .. .
all purchased many years ago.
I purchased fabric that a girl born in 1959 could appreciate.
The colors are perfectly vintage.
Do you know why I know that?
The buttons that I sewed on. . .
are a perfect match.
My mom's button selections are still often attached to the original card. .
I always wonder. . did she buy too many. . or were they on a sale she just couldn't walk by?
Did my mom ever imagine her buttons being used in this way?
I doubt it. . .
would she like that her buttons are being used in this way?
She'd be delighted.
Oh and guess what? . . We turned to the clocks to Daylight savings time .. .spring ahead they always say . .Did someone say spring? Never mind that we woke to a skiff of snow. . .
