Can I Interest You in a Drink?

Yesterday I completed Mill Hill's Martini kit. It's for my grandmother, who you may remember retired from her bartending job this year.

OMAG. I just realized I didn't sew on the damn button. Just imagine this with an olive star button sewn on with red thread somewhere. Aiaiai, I'm always jumping the gun. Still, I'm crossing it off my list.

What a cute gift! Button or no button, the stitching is done, so it counts as a finish! :)

That's really cute. It's always nice to have a finish crossed off your list.

I aggree with everyone so far. Looks great button or no button and counts as a cross of the list! It will make a very nice gift too, very appropriate.

I agree too.....buttons are extra....a finish is a finish. Cross that bad boy off the list!

Btw, great gift! I'm sure your grandmother will love it.

I just love this design! I am a huge fan of those Mill Hill kits and just completed two of them myself, with two more to go.
