The crunchy part of the year has begun. You know, when everything is smushed together into
"halloweenthanksgivingchristmasnewyears"?From October until the start of the new year, my life is just too busy. I'm always trying to squeeze extras into my routine and inevitably other things are neglected. (Such as blog posting!) So, let me play some catch up.
I've posted pictures below of my "recycled" clothing experiment. The skirt that was too long was shortened and a ruffle added to the bottom with the excess material, along with a matching ribbon trim.

At home, I cooked a big ham with pineapple for supper on Sunday - then recycled it into sandwiches the rest of the week. Ugh! I'm even reading a book called "Juliet" by Anne Fortier which is a updated, recycled plot from Shakespear's "Romeo and Juliet". Earlier this week I watched the old musical "West Side Story" - which is [guess what?] another re-telling of "Romeo and Juliet". Seriously, I just now realized that!
