I love Faith's instruction, and I always learn something new in her classes. I definitely did not learn how to sew on buttons correctly in my youth!

Such a simple thing - I've done it loads of times before but I still learned something new. Using a straight pin is new to me and I liked the way you did your double knots. I guess you'll have to unpick that button now and do it again in pink thread, Faith... ;-).
