DARA'S RUG ~ ~ ~
Last weekend at Sonny's class reunion, they had a silent auction as a fundraiser! I bought this cute handmade hat and fingerless gloves that classmate Sandy knit! There's some sparkly yarn in there and that just did it for me!! She was such a fun gal that I just had to have what she so lovingly created!
This might not show up well but I wanted to show you a little damaged shirt rescue!! My DIL, Miki, burned a hole in a cute shirt when a spark from the grill jumped out at her. She felt really bad because she liked her shirt a lot! I told her I would take it home and work a little magic on it! I had this sparkly fabric (surprised?) and made a little flower to cover the burn mark (she likes it)! Then I took a shirt of mine that had two little pinholes (where do those things come from) on the sleeve right at the shoulder and did the same thing ~ stitched on a flower and a heart that I handcut from the sparkly material!!! I used a little stitchwitchery and ironed it in place before sewing it on so it didn't move around! There are a couple of blogs that I've run across that have done this kind of thing so I went to my memory bank (which is a scary place) and put that info to good use! Otherwise, the garment is useless! Try resurrecting something that you thought was ruined ~ it can't hurt!!
That's it for today folks!! It's a beautiful Ohio day ~ enjoy!!
