Well, it’s true: once in a while I need a little break from painting. Recharge. Fuel up. So that’s when I break out my sewing machine.
I don’t know I’ll ever be good enough to sell the things I make with my machine. But I LOVE making things for myself. And even better, I’m able to take old, worn out items and repurpose them. That’s what I did recently with these old sweaters of mine:
As you can see, it’s quite a haul. Lots of bright colors. And many of these are cashmere. But they had holes here and there, so I couldn’t even donate them. So I figured out a way to salvage the best parts of them:
Now I have a nice, bright, “New”, throw blanket. It’s warm and SO SOFT, from all that cashmere.
Oh, I’ll be back to painting soon enough. It’s kind of nice to take a little break once in a while, and NOW is the perfect time! Once spring rolls around, the spring and summer shows begin… Fun, Fun, Fun!
