WOYWW - 501

Good morning all!

I chuckled when I typed WOYWW - 501 - I think that was the sort of Levi jeans we all wore in the seventies! 501 - not WOYWW obviously!

So, I popped to see Annie for a coffee and to take her a bunch of bright yellow tulips, and this is what I came home with.....


That wool bag of mine will never be empty will it?

This is what she inspired me to do when I said I was using up all my scraps...



Two rainbows, clouds, sparkly sky and lots of bits and bobs plus a label stitched on my machine...
All things bright and beautiful indeed! (Another twiddle mitt to go in the bag ready for the hospital.)

Lastly, I promised a snap of one of the pairs of recycled jeans that I made for Ben to play in.

I think the original was a pair of jeggings. There was just enough room to recut this small pair once I had slashed the side seams and laid them out flat.

I would do a tutorial but I am not sure anyone else would want to do it. I just like little challenges. I will try and post a snap of Ben wearing one of the blue denim jeans that I recut. They were certainly worth the effort and look really snazzy.

Well that's it for this week.
My Tilly Tea Dance workmate is coming round today so that we can have our first "staff meeting" of 2019 - lol. She will tell me what to do and I will obey!!!

xx Jo

Love the bright rainbow colours on your twiddle mitt. Someone will love that. I also smiled at the Levi thing - only for me it was the 80s. Happy WOYWW, thanks for sharing. Love and God Bless, Caro x (#27)

Hi Jo!

Love your colorful something! 😊 I am thinking of starting knitting again as I have lost one of my beloved shawls!
The 501 reminded me of Levis jeans too! I wonder if you can still buy them!
Love and hugs,
Cardarian

I bet you'd be disappointed if your wool bag all of a sudden became empty....
