It's What I've Been Working on Wednesday!



When I make something for the first time, I love it right away & am so proud of myself. Then the doubt starts to creep in. What if i'm the only one that likes it? Does it look weird? What was I thinking?! Well, that was the thought process with this skirt.



I instantly loved it, then the doubt crept in. I decided to wear it anyway, and went to a neighborhood garage sale that I stumbled upon. I got several unsolicited compliments from total strangers, and one wanted to know how she could order them from me! Now i'm ok with my skirt ;). In fact, i'll be making more for my upcoming craft show in December (more details on that later!). It reminds me of poodle skirt, but made with merino wool, and with a modern owly twist :).



What else would you like to see next on my skirts? Ooh... how about some sheep!

So, what have you been working on? As always, feel free to post your recycled wool projects on my Facebook page, and if you have a shop, make sure to leave your website link there too, so we can all ooh & ahh over your woolly goods!

I hope everyone is enjoying this fall as much as I have!

A very modern and cute twist of the poodle skirt! Owls are sooo more cool than poodles any day!
