Today was a blustery day, perfect for coffee and sewing. I prepped some things while Nicky was awake and when he went down for his nap I got to work.
I recently thrifted this skirt because I loved the fabric:
A COLOR and not black or grey like nearly everything else I own for this cooler weather.) The sweater was a bit too big so I threw it in the dryer for 20 minutes this morning and it shrunk the perfect amount. (Note to self: do not put this sweater in the dryer anymore.)
Here is another scarf I had thrifted this past summer but it was big and square and had ratty edges.
I had a plain orange long sleeve tshirt that I was going to get rid of but I noticed today that the two matched! I took the tshirt in a bit, cut the edges off of the scarf, cut it in fourths, and sewed a long skinny scarf out of it.
I also took in another (blue) (thrifted) shirt and two (beige and green) (thrifted) sweaters today.
I'm starting to feel a bit better about getting dressed these next few months.
I love thrift stores. :)
p.s. My big kids took Nicky downstairs for 15 minutes so I could type this up. I don't normally blog when baby is awake anymore because he attacks me to get at the computer. He loves to sit in my chair and play with the mouse. Oh, Nicky.
