Above is my wonderful Salvation Army wool coat find. Cost me a whole $10! It is in perfect condition except for one spot, and I have already tried spot removing it and it is working. My picture makes it appear there is a button missing, but that is not the case.
I have been busy at it this weekend sewing our Halloween costumes. We (Em and I) are both going to be witches. I have hers complete except for a button and sewing the rest of her hat together. I just have the hat left for mine. I would like to tell you that I am exhausted and really do not see how I can spend another minute in front of the sewing machine.... but I will. Just so Em will look adorable (I could care less about me.... I am really trying to dodge that bullet). I was going to take some pictures, but I will wait until I am completely finished with the costumes. Okay, I have to admit what I really did was leave the darn camera at my parent's house, and I just do not want to walk over and get the thing.
Did anyone get the newest Edition of Martha's Living?
Very nice article on felting. I bought a couple of sweaters along with the coat above that I really need to get to. If I can just get past this Halloween sewing. I find it kind of funny she brings this up after Wonderful Miss Alicia has already been doing this (well, we all have, but Alicia does it so well, I just had to link to her Turtle Sundae purse).
While at Salvation Army/Goodwill I also came into possession of some wonderful wool blazers, pants and skirts to make really cool scarves and purses out of. I have completed one, but there are many many more to come. If I just had more time... you know the more I get into this the more and more I wish I could just quit my job and do this full time. It is much more rewarding, and I have always been the type to like to make things, whether food, crochet, sewing, etc for others, not myself. I mean, I can cook a huge meal, and I get way more enjoyment watching the others enjoy their dinner. Same with sewing, crocheting, knitting... and on and on. Oh maybe someday I will get that chance. I guess I should start buying lottery tickets so I can afford to stay at home... lol Maybe the Gods would smile down upon me one day and let me get the winning lottery ticket... well, one can always dream.
