Buttons finally attached

I must say, I really do appreciate good service. I bought these natural wood buttons of Ebay from a company called Beads Needs. I completed the transaction and paid one day, and these arrived in the post the day after. I couldn't have asked for better service. I chose natural wood as I had knitted the cardigan using natural wool. Although I have had these buttons for a couple of weeks, I finally sewed them on today. Now I can wear the cardigan and do it up properly. Yes, I confess. I have worn it once without the buttons!
The next job of the day was to frog the stitches that were in the wrong place..
..then restitch correctly.
Then I could carry on as if nothing had happened.
With some more of the foreground stitched, the perspective of the house is easier to see. The weather forecast for tomorrow isn't brilliant, so I am hoping to get a bit of stitching in before I have to take the boys out.

Frogging can be so frustrating. Hope you are enjoying the stitch though.

I too would have worn it without the buttons. I like the stitching your doing on the Thomas K. I love his paintings. Wendy
