Retreats are so much fun!  And I love getting things accomplished!

well, I do rotate them periodically.  And you'd seen my studio - it's pretty full now.  DH has suggested I start hanging them on the cathedral ceiling.

DD asked if I could make her another therapy vest, to use with her Occupational Therapy kids.  She had bought a couple with buttons & snaps but she wanted one with smaller buttons for the kids to practice with.  After my sister and I tut tut'ed over how poorly the binding was attached on the ones she purchased, I got started.  Wow, It has been a long time since I made any button holes, took me a while to remember how my machine does them. 

It is interesting, she had tried purchasing some shirts for the kids to practice buttoning, but they were very reluctant to put on someone else's shirt.  But they are ok with the vest.  Go figure.  Keep in mind these are home health kids with developmental challenges.  Anyway, it was fun to work on something that will help her at her job.

Nice job Dee!  It's great that you can be involved in your DD's work this way.

Dee, glad you could be of assistance to DD.  I like your choice of bright orange and practical grey fabric.


It is actually navy and red. relaxed  she wanted contrast.

Cute little vest and how nice of you to be able to do something the help you DD.  It makes you appreciate things when something that is so easy for us to do can be difficult for others.  If you made another one, would it help them if you matched the buttonhole thread to the color of the button?

Nov-12 has been a while since I’ve done one....and I’m not sure I have done one on my newer machine.
