I DID have a very good time cutting up an Old Navy lambs wool sweater I bought at the thrift store. I'd made a couple of felted wool wreathes and garlands out of dark wool sweaters a few years ago.
This sweater was much brighter. I'd already made some of it into a scarf and hat. I thought of a few other things, but I kept coming back to the wreath and garland idea.
This one striped sweater gave me so many colors!
Then, I remembered that I had purchased a couple of bead storage containers at the thrift store a few years ago that had some bits and pieces of old glass garland beads in them.
The most surprising thing isn't that I had them, it's that I knew exactly where they were!
Youngest Son stopped by today to play with his niece and nephews, so I could even run down into the basement and rut around for things. That was nice.
Now there is a NEW mess on the dining room table.
But I'm happy because I made something!
Well. Sort of.
