Snow Day and T Shirts
I'm still unpacking boxes and arranging my craft room but I have been able to get some work done. I don't have internet at my new job (one of the many reasons I haven't been blogging) and don't have the freedom to cook or sew like I did in my old one. I still have a lot of down time and have been taking small projects to work on while I'm over there.
Deb Upcycles along with other rugs.
So, I've been unpacking boxes of fabric and purging. I put aside a lot of fabric I was pretty sure I was never going to use and took it to the Upcycle Exchange the other day. I was just planning on getting a credit to use at a future time because the last thing I needed right now was to be bringing anymore supplies home before I had gone through the 20 or so boxes I still have left.
The owner had just finished up a demonstration on how to make scarves from old t-shirts with several hundred people (yeah, that sounds like a madhouse, doesn't it) and had boxes and bags full of cut up t-shirts she had left over in the back.
I couldn't help myself, I just couldn't so I traded $5 in store credit from my fabric and brought it all home. This is only part of it. I've already used some to make another rug and am working on cutting the rest down into manageable pieces.
So that's my plan for this snowy day, that and a nap. Naps are good, very good.
