This is how my days have been spent recently...
Once upon a time, I had two shirts. I had a purple one and a blue one. I loved my two shirts, they were awesome knit material with a flattering little yoke and buttons down the front. These two shirts got me through many summer days.
Then one day, I made the fatal decision to wear the blue shirt camping. I hauled wood. My shirt collected sap. It was ruined and I cried. (not really, but play along with me here!) And then my blue shirt sat in my drawer, I couldn't bear to throw it out.
A few days ago, I robbed fabric from the back of my blue shirt for another project, forever sealing it's fate of never being worn again.
Until today! Today, I cut my blue shirt up! I cut it up and used the ruined pieces to measure new pieces of blue calico. The calico was attached to the cute yoke and I have a new beloved blue shirt. A blue shirt with some added character.
And my heart can again sing with blue shirt joy... just don't look too close, I'm not a perfectionist!
