Today wasn’t terrible. It wasn’t awesome. It was a hot Wednesday.

I distracted myself from the approaching end of summer and the ever expanding to-do list by making short forays into P&S Fabrics* and M&J Trimming.

I’m designing a gift for a good friend and am not yet positive what buttons I wish to use on it. I bought several options so I can choose when the time is right. When I walked in, I thought I was looking for something completely different. I surprised myself by pulling boxes containing these off the shelves again and again.

E acquired a new suit for the upcoming yamin noraim (what you thought I’d let that approach without any mention? I do miss writing on this topic, but if I want to give my learning what it needs, I don’t have time to write here as well. If you would like to try private study feel free to ask.) I really don’t need or want a new suit (I’d like a new top but that’s another saga), but I did really want to replace the buttons on the jacket. I’ve meant to replace them from day one, I think for about six years! The buttons the jacket came with are traditional, but still too flashy and trendy for me. I never felt comfortable with them. These aren’t quite the ones I was looking for, but they’ll do if I don’t find anything else between now and then.

It was a nice diversion for a Wednesday. I wish I could do it more often, like on any day that ends with Y.

* They moved again. They’re now next door to their old locale and they now have Cascade 220 & 220 Superwash (in limited colours) and Crystal Palace Mini Mochi and Mochi Plus.

  1. I miss M+J, it’s one of my all-time favorite New York shops. (ABC is another.) It’s always on my list of places to visit because they have some incredible things you really won’t find anywhere else. Can’t wait to see what you make.
