Yesterday, I practed buttonholes by hand. My hands wer very very sore by the end of the day with the practice buttonholes yesterday, and the practice buttons the day before that. Today I am gonna try to get some dmc floss that has a better color match then the green gutterman top stitching thread I was using. I know the silk thread is more appropriate, but don’t feel like “waseeing” the day with a city trip. Maybe next week, or if not next week, then the week after definitely. I need to get silk thread, 1/4″ and 1/8″ (if I can find it) twill tape, and linen fabric. Anyway, here are photos of the stuff from the last couple of days.
