Besides my reused sweater mittens and my reused tee shirt jewelry there are other areas where I try not to buy new. Nowadays I love to shop the thrift stores - much the same way I used to love to shop at Macy's - for just the right addition to my home decor. I found this pillow sham this week, it measured 30" x 24", something like that. The colors were perfect for my kitchen which is a bit wacky in orange and red. And already quilted and a nice softly used feel.
I thought the mitts turned out swell! I used my mitten pattern; just enlarged it a bit.
I ended up with 3 mitts and three pot holders. All for $1.19. Feeling very clever. :)
Living in Maine with my best friend,Sam, four sheep and a llama, nine ducks, two dogs, one pony and two fish. Oops, make that six sheep now. Working with fiber whether it is paper, felt or fabric, pleases me. The feel of the fiber is important - the tactile aspect of my projects give me as much pleasure as the visual.
