I finally sewed the button back on the lovely vest I bought back in November, wore once, a button vanished, and the company sent me a new one a week or so ago. I am so happy to have this piece of clothing back, and for so little effort. A little bit of mending is easy to do, and gives me clothing back to wear. If only I would do more of it more frequently, my wardrobe would be much improved, and by clothing I already own.

Update: So much for thinking the button saga was over. I only realized when I came back from wearing it that they'd sent me the wrong size button. No wonder I had trouble buttoning it up.

Even though little mending jobs only take a few minutes apiece, whenever I finish one I feel a little surge of pride : )

Re: Pride
I'd feel even happier about my mending project if I hadn't been so oblivious. I could I not have noticed while sewing it on that the button was the wrong size?? It's the right design, but the wrong size, too big and strains the button hole. I somehow didn't notice all this until I got home and was having trouble unbuttoning it again.
