patching things up

Believe me when I say this: I could never host a craft-blog. Any resident craftiness of mine is more along the lines of sneakiness and trickery (all in fun of course). BUT.

Lately, I have been clever with a needle and thread. And in a typical display of sneakiness, I slipped into Friend #7's bedroom when she was not at home and helped myself to her recycled, color-coordinated and meticulously folded pile of fabric remnants. Being a "my stuff is your stuff"-type girl, she is usually thrilled when I snitch a pinch from her treasures, but this time she wailed dramatically when she came home from work. She said (and I quote):

"But that's my Sound of Music Von Trapp Family Singers material!"

My other choice (the green corduroy with embroidered St. Bernards) was not begrudged of me, seeing that she had a whole two pant-legs left of that.

Anyway. I rescued (someone say "re-purposed"?) two pairs of jeans from the dustbin and put them stylishly back into circulation.
That about wraps it up for the type of fun I'm having. How 'bout y'all?
