Reunited…and it feels so good!
Look what I got back in the mail today: my long lost (not really) crochet/sewn shirt. I sent it off to the nice folks at Southwest Trading Company to display at their TNNA booth since it featured some of their Vickie Howell yarn. Hooray, I had been missing it. And here’s a better pic of the top, colorwise, than the sunny day when I first photographed it.
I had almost forgotten about it until Green Kitchen posted her vintagey version. I just love seeing offshoots of the same idea and how different people work it out. There’s nothing better than someone being inspired enough to try something out for themselves. I am in love with her version too (maybe I’ll make another one?).
In other news, I’ve been doing some quick crafting because I realized I was going a little nuts with the big move coming up. I kind of stopped crafting in an effort to avoid mess-making, but let’s face it: things are going to be a mess for a while! And speaking of messes, I’m not even sure what happened to my cute Mary Ink shirt. It somehow got stained (I’m stain-prone, but I do not remember this!) so I wanted to save it. First I was going to applique the dots but then I saw the plaid yo-yo lying on my desk so I decided to go with it. That makes one more day I can stretch out my laundry, which I pretty desperately need to do at this point.
