The buttons I used were hand made by a New Hampshire craftsman. They are pewter, and have the Tree of Life on them. I'm going to steam block this a bit, as it's a bit more rumply than the last on I made with machined yarn, but after that it's ready to wrap and gift.

As much as I hate finish work the baby that my BSJ is intended for will be here any time now. So, I had to finish up. I did use the 3-needle bind off for the arms, and decided not to add a collar. I do have the idea that an old fashioned crocheted lace collar would make a wonderful addition, but realistically this child would be in college before I got around to doing that!
