The woman who takes as her life
motto "Do .It at once” is the woman
who is not hounded by an accusing
conscience. The modern prayer for
forgiveness is chiefly for things we
have not done.
The only time one is sure of Is the
present; putting off to some more con

Do it at once is but auother name

never swamp you If each wave is

It is almost impossible to resist the

so many charming designs and shades.
They wear well and wash well, yet

Crochet buttons will be very fashionable this winter. Women will make
them at home, thus producing an ornament for gowns that, if bought or made
to order, would be very expensive. It is easier to have the buttons covered
to order, and you supply the cloth or silk. Deft fingers can carefully cover
the cheap wooden button moulds and thus have the satisfaction of an attrac
tive home-made decoration. Some of the large buttons are trimmed with
embroidery passementerie beads and sometimes a quilting of satin or narrow
ribbon. Some buttons are square, others like marbles, and many are as flat
as a lozenge.
We have given in the design above ideas for seven different buttons.
Five are covered with a crocheted design of buttonhole twist or embroidery
silk, one with three rows of soutache braid crossing at different angles, anil
the other two show a simple embroidered design.
The stitches in the first five are so plainly shown that any one acquainted
with the simple embroidery stitches can easily pick them out. They nre
drawn and not photographed with this special idea in view.
In the third from the last, where soutache braid is used, great care must
be taken to tack the ends very quickly and securely before they have a
chance to ravel.
There are two designs for the last button, which is embroidered in a star
or petal design. The button in this, as in all the others, is first covered with
silk. Then the embroidery silk is crossed aver the button twice at right
angles to fix the foundation lines. Around these four lines a button-hole or
slip stitch of the silk is carried round and round, so holding it as to form a
square as shown, and making the button-hole stitch every time you pass one
of the four cross-threads When enough rows haTe been rounded or you con
sider the outline of the square is as large as you wish the points of the star
to be or the ends of the then run your needle way under all the threads
at a joint midway between any two of the lines. Draw as tightlv as you wish
to form the shape of the petal, holding the threads, as you draw, with the
thumb and first finger of the left hand. Continue to do this at a point exactly
midway between each of tbe two lines until ail four petals have been shaptxi
F4»sten your silk securely and you are ready for the next one.
A little darker shade of silk used than the covering of the button is a
pleasing combination. All blaca or all white are very attractive.
It may te that the reported diffculty

But on her return home she could not

A fortnight later a seamstress came
to the house to do a day’s work. After
watching her for awhile fashion old
style garments into those that were
