Feather Pantaloons

I love chicken butts....

They remind me of little girls lace panties!!

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!

The 3 R's

Reuse -- Recycle -- Repurpose

I can say that in recent years these three words have become more important to me but in all reality they have ALWAYS been a part of my life...mostly out of sheer necessity.
Yes, I admit I am a HUGE packrat...but this is because of my upbringing. My Granny saved EVERYTHING, this trait was passed on to me -- this is why I snip the buttons off of shirts before I turn them into rags. Hence, my BAZILLIONS of buttons and why I save old bread bags for various things like "pooper" scooping the back yard.

I have a picture of my Mom as a little girl wearing a dress Granny made from flour sack fabric...and stories about making quilts from feed sacks!

So the question comes...what do i do with my chicken feed sacks? Now these days they are made from a poly woven fabric so I decided to try this...

Just add thread!

This one is a bit large, afterall it's made from a 50lb sack. But I see many various uses for a bag this size. The next one may be a bit smaller, especially since I'll have plenty more bags necessary to feed The Girlz!

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!

FO Friday

Yet again I'm really late in posting up something....I've had several knitting FO's and this "sewing" FO~~

I worked on the design during the cold-cold months of winter...when I couldn't do anything else but sit on the couch under a blanket freezing my A*S off, created the "prototype" and finally got the finished product. The only thing this picture is lacking is the closure I put on it.

Drum roll please......

So...what is it?

My EVERYTHING needle case! I wanted a case that would organize all my needles, now I ask myself -- "Why are the straights in there?" I NEVER use them!!

I see a redesign on the horizon!!

So, what have you been working on?

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!
