So that's something new done this year - covering buttons! Poor Owen got put on hold til I could find 4 large buttons which would not cost a fortune (what is it with buttons these days?). Finally (and yes I should have gone there first) I got them in mum's button box - flat and just the right size. Apparently these go inside the legs and arms and work the joints ... Owen and I are both a little sceptical about how this works in practice. But at least I now know how to cover buttons!
