After a hectic work day yesterday, it was all washed away. Mainly by the company of my lovely friend Laurie, but not insignificantly by button buying, Oh the bliss. We went to a fab place called Mandor’s where we bought some red gingham, and some great buttons – shell, lady bird, pearl and of course, Lucky dogs! Very helpful staff, although the wool was a tad pricy compared to buying online, there is the decided bonus of being able to touch/feel/drool over it. OH – and DIVINE Liberty offcuts available. Very excited to start using my purchases!

The day was brought to an excellent close thanks to yummy Salmon ramen at Wagamamas, and more button mania thanks to Laurie and her yellow button stash. Must do it all again soon! Thanks Laurie!
