Button, Button

I now have two projects at the buttonhole stage: the Now Shirt and the Kwik Sew cardigan. And yet, both are just stalled.

What gives with me? I know how to make buttonholes. I have two good sewing machines with buttonholers.

I think I'll set up one of the machines and at least make some samples. Perhaps that'll kick-start this phase of both projects. Sigh.

Yes! Power through! This is when I give myself deadlines and rewards. ;)

I am looking forward to seeing your new pieces!

Just keep telling yourself that when you do those darn buttonholes you will have two new things to wear and to show off on your blog.

Can't wait to see them!

Ah, yes, the buttonholes. The stumbling blocks of sewing! I just sit down at the machine and test, test, test which is when I realize everything is going to be okay and I git 'er done!

Yes, I can relate. Sometimes that's where I stall out also. Sit down and do the test and before you know it you'll have them knocked out in no time.

This sounds so familiar! Sometimes I wsh I lived n New York and could take my garments into a shop to have the buttonholes made by experts.

Sing it sister! I too have equipment that does a nice buttonhole, but I stall...add hems that have to be hand sewn to that list, but they don't have the same potential for disaster that buttonholes seem to have. :-)

Buttonholer block! Like writer's block but more buttony.
