I said one thing about this weekend, I would definitely have enough time to finish my Hitchhiker. Naturally, that means I didn’t. That’s gotta be one of the corollaries to Murphy’s Law, declaring one’s intent is the quickest way to ensure something won’t happen.
I did get lots of other little tidbits done though. I added a cute little bill to my recent Grateful Dead hat. I wasn’t sure the colors I had left would work but turns out, it was meant to be! I love when stashbusting turns out like this! It’s for a friend who accidentally felted an alpaca hat I gave her years ago. I’m pretty sure she’ll agree, it was worth the wait!
I embellished the stupid black hat, as well. I love it now!
The idea of a bluegrass festival full of 70’s glam rock fans tickles me pink! And the pom-pom is the proverbial cherry on top, just in case anyone missed the humor of it before. I have no idea if this one will be well received, but as usual, I’ll be happy to keep it for myself!
After that, I got the crazy idea to cut up a dress my Mom tie dyed for me years ago. It’s been my staple lounge wear for a long time, to the point of decay. It developed a gaping armpit hole but I couldn’t just throw it away. I dismissed the idea of mending it, instantly. Clearly THAT was too much work. Cutting it up into ‘tarn’ struck me as brilliant though. I couldn’t get the scissors in my hands fast enough. Three hours later, I’m not even half done.
I think I’ll have enough for something garment like though! It’s a floor length, shift dress, so no seams to get in the way! Just a big flat piece of fabric to be cut up. I can’t wait to give it a new life! But first, I’m finishing that Hitchhiker! Maybe ;)
