Wool, Wool, Wool
Yep, this is what I have been up too lately besides my everyday job. I found 1 blazer, and 3 wool skirts, and with Kim's encouragement, I picked them apart and felted them myself at home. I don't think my right hand has recovered just yet, but I am nursing it with heat and ice. But I now have a very big assortment of felted wool, just waiting to be used in a project. I was pretty happy with my purchases, the skirts were $1.99 each and the blazer was $5.00. I will tell you, the blazer was a Ralph Lauren, and it killed me to take it apart, and the beige skirt was an Evan Picone, and the only reason I am mentioning this, is that they were both a pain to take apart. They were very well made!!! But now, I have a feel of how to do it and what to look for, so I am excited to continue my search! Hope everyone has a wonderful week,, Happy Spring to all!!
