I was supposed to be ironing a huge pile of clothes, the ironing board was set up in my sewing room.
The tempting distractions of being in this room, will often result in very little ironing happening and lots of new ideas being tested out.
As I am sure you will understand?
So this happened at the weekend, (whilst I was supposed to be ironing)
I posted this series of 3 little pics from my phone to instagram….and was amazed at the reaction….
My beloved Flamingo cardi was on its last legs.
It had had a good life, but I could not bear to let it go even to charity….I had an idea
I posted this pic…
Then I took the scissors to it….and posted this pic….
Quick as a flash and 20 minutes later, my idea was fully hatched and formed!
…. I posted the last pic….
Well………. the likes came in so fast my phone was steaming hot!
I think you could say it was a surprise hit of the re-fashioned kind?
Big thank you to all my IG friends and all those ♥♥’s
(and to my pal thevanillasquirrel who gave me the cardi as a gift in the first place !!)
PS You can find meon Instagram….. so come and join in the fun!
