Rachel, I got my JABC buttons (and the free pattern) for "The Boys Are Back in Town" from the LNS that sponsored the stitching retreat. Most shops should have them or be able to get them.
Drema at Needlecraft Corner has a kit deal (buttons, fabric, and floss) on the whole thing for a very good price: click here. I've ordered from her several times, always with great and prompt service.
DH's alarm went off at its usual time this morning and it began to rain about a minute afterwards. It's been raining ever since. Cloudy, gloomy, grismal, and raining. We need the rain, but I miss the sun. I think I'll make my chili for supper and have DH make his skillet cornbread.
I should get finished with my second little Christmas ornament tonight as I just have the backstitching to finish. Sorry, no picture until after December 5th! Next, I am going to stitch "The Crab is In" by Waxing Moon Designs.
I'm planning to put it in this cute tuck pillow I bought at the recent stitching retreat. See the little crabs in the side borders? I'll add a hanger to it so I can hang it near my computer desk.
