I was on my way home when my cell phone rang. It was my friend the mechanic. He had the part and wanted to know when I wanted to come by. Well, never any time like the present! So, I hustled out to his garage in the countryside and finally, 2 hours later I was on the road again. He didn't even laugh at my temporary fix-it job!
But I have to admit, though I didn't get much sewing done, I did pop by a thrift shop during my errands and found some goodies. We don't have a lot of good thrifting around here, at least, not to my knowledge. Maybe I don't know where to look yet. But I am learning.
So, here are my finds:
This wool sweater, a girl's size but I know that my girls will not wear a wool sweater. My plan is to probably felt it in the wash and figure out what to do with it after that. What do you think? I considered unraveling it, but the wool is very fine "shetland wool".
Then, I found this wool sweater/jacket. It seems all ready felt like but I am thinking about refurbishing it. Any ideas? I think I will get it cleaned while I ponder the possibilities.
I found a couple of patterns. One is a cute new pattern and one is a funky, retro, circa I-don't-know.
And today, my plan started out okay. Gym class at 5:30 AM (check!). But my youngest didn't feel well today so she was home. Plans for cross country skiing and some leisure time with hubby were canned but I found some time to see Elvis today. Photos coming soon!
I don't know what to plan for tomorrow!!! I guess, I will go with the flow.
