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.
