random stuff on friday

TODAY:
I created this...
with some fabric scraps....

Out of this.
It IS the same sweatshirt.
What a difference lighting makes, huh?

I'm not a fancy dresser.
I like warm and comfortable....
and this sweatshirt (found at the thrift store)
is....
WARM.
COMFORTABLE.
And now...
Long enough to SUIT me.

If I had purchased it NEW.....
I would have been too afraid to cut into it!!
Wouldn't you??
When it only cost a couple of dollars...
I didn't worry.
I chalked up my purchase to:
Entertainment!!!!


TODAY:
My table looked normal again.

TODAY:
I gave some cookies to a neighbor
Inspired by this post and ARTICLE!!!
Read Brenda's article and BE INSPIRED!!!

  2. Kim: I would have blogged about HOW I did it...but my methods were too slapdash and I did not follow any SURE method. It's a miracle it came out as nice as it did!!!
