Wovember Swag

It's here!

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.

Both of those are too cool!

I used to make all my own clothes too, mostly because stores did not have what I wanted. But I've got some Too Good fabric in my stash still as well.

Isn't that so, having such a beautiful fabric or yarn for that matter and one can't cut / knit it up for fear of ???? The buttons are wonderful and they sure do mean alot I'm sure! I love mine too:) knittinnow

Beautiful wool! I have some I bought years ago from a Pendleton outlet store. I wonder where I put it...I used to sew a lot of my own clothes before I got so curvy (and when I liked the patterns better).

Love the veggie badges!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
