A set of three Wovember badges in fabric I shipped off to Felicity.
The history of this fabric is funny, if you are aware of what I do: I bought this wool houndstooth check (in navy and kelly green) more than 35 years ago with a solid kelly green wool to make a suit. Yes. Me. I used to make all my own clothes.
And tho' it makes no sense, this wool (which back then was terribly pricey, even if I did work for the department store where I bought this back in the day of pricey department stores having haberdashery sections) intimidated the life out of me. I could NOT cut into it. Could. Not.
So it has sat in a box all these years...and when Wovember came along, and I found Felicity's badges, I knew I had to cut, finally, into this lovely wool and have a badge of it. I sent her a nice sized swatch, and she sent me - THREE! The two veggie badges, I saw when I went to order my Wovember badges, and flipped out over the *other love* of mine....vegetarian cooking/eating. And my kitchen is full of vintage veggie crockery. So I had to buy these, too.
And I love them so much, I've ordered more! (yup...)
I can't wait to wear these.
