Ten years ago, I cross-stitched and assembled this sewing case. A friend of mine had stitched the same case and she found a beautiful silver-coloured button with a floral shape to finish hers off.
She had an extra floral button so she gave it to me to use on my sewing case.
By the time I stitched and got the case put together, I had forgotten about the special button so I used the one you see in the photograph.
When I showed her the case a few months later, she asked me why I hadn't used the button she gave me.
I've been looking for that button in my stash of stuff ever since she asked me about it over 9 years ago!
A couple of weeks ago, it came to me that I had sewn the button onto the button vest that I had made that you can see in this photograph.
I thought it was hilarious that the button had been right under my eyes all that time and for a few days, I had in the back of my mind that I would share this story with you.
When I got around to photographing the vest I realized that I hadn't used the button on the vest after all!
I'm still trying to figure out if I had a dream that the button was on the vest. I could see it there so clearly in my mind's eye.
But the button is still missing. I'm not giving up, it's got to be here somewhere.
