See What a Day Spent Crafting Can Create....

Yesterday was my birthday.   I had such a wonderful day shopping & crafting with my best bud and partner in crime - Melissa.  We went to a few thrift stores, flea markets, antique stores looking for goodies.

On our journey I found this rather boring wool sweater at the shop.  I picked it up not knowing what I would do with this thing.   I often resurrect sweaters that have seen better days in to warm soft goodies to wear for winter and I knew this one had potential!!

So, as I was deconstructing this little lovely Melissa suggested that we dye the yarn.  Hmmm.  Did not have any of my dyes left so we searched for other ideas.  Melissa being the brilliant creative artist that she is suggested food coloring.  My first reaction was no that won't work.   But I wanted to try something.  So, I sent her off into the kitchen to mix some color while I worked on taking this monstrosity apart.  She loves mixing colors and experimenting with new crafts.

Look at what she created!  Just amazing... Now she is my head mixologist/partner in crime...
