I do love the button that comes along at this point in HHGG when out travelers have been picked up by the Heart of Gold. Looking around at the ship, Arthur "reached out and pressed an invitingly large red button on a nearby panel. The panel lit up with the words Please do not press this button again." Pure Douglas Adams.
There is another mention of buttons slightly farther on, but I think one reference is enough - am I boring everyone?
I confess that Trillian's marvelous collection of buttons and trinkets had me buying some tiny buttons for no other reason than that they are pretty:
I couldn't think of how to quill a button, but I do have the Martha Stewart button punch, which I bought simply because I love buttons. So it's not quilled but it is made of paper.
Hope everyone has a good week. And for those of us in Canada - Happy Victoria Day (We celebrate Queen Victoria's birthday.) The weekend is also called the May two four weekend, because of the date, and because Canadian beer is sold in cartons of 24 cans. It's the unofficial beginning of 'summer'. Enjoy the holiday and fireworks. "It's the twenty fourth of May,  the Queen's birthday, if you don't give us a holiday, we'll all run away" (childhood rhyme which no one sings anymore). [realized on Tuesday I had the rhyme wrong - ah memory]
