April in August

Sunday was nice and lazy, so I was able to finish up the last sleeve on April.

And I did order some buttons, though not the ones I showed you a little while ago. As much as I liked them, the idea of paying more than $10 in shipping for something that can be sent in a bubble mailer... well...

Instead I found a much more reasonable Etsy seller in Halifax who had these lovely vintage ones

With the sleeves done and the buttons on hand, I was itching to get the bands done too. So after dinner, I set to it, and by bedtime...
... she was on the blocking board. Sadly, those beautiful buttons are too big for the button holes, but I've got some back-up buttons that will do just nicely.

A proper FO post will come when Mom and I get a chance for a photoshoot. With the girls down, and summer wrapping up, it might not be for a few weeks - but stay tuned!

You are doing the hardest part for me: Finishing. I know it is so important but I don't like doing it. I LOVE to see how you block and finish. Makes me think.....well someday maybe
