Patched up granny cardi

Postman Dave brought me a  parcel of goodies 
from the lovely Jessie Chorley textile artist/stitcher

and I quickly made use of the printed templates

by stitching them onto some gingham
and then onto my granny cardi that I got from 
the charity shop ages ago.

I've just realised the brooch I made looks like a nipple tassle 
Well it would if my boobs weren't six inches lower haha.

I made this basket brooch yesterday
when I should have been working in the office.
Don't tell the boss will you.

See you next week and
thanks for dropping by

  6. Amazing what you can do with a bit of imagination and pazzazz, Lynne! Fabulous makeover! Granny would be soooo proud. Thank you for your fun comment which made me laugh - I know the feeling - my brain is so full of kittens at the moment that there isn't much room for anything else!!

  16. The "patches" really added to the cardigan and I laughed about your nipple tassel comment. I didn't even think that until you said it. What a hoot! Love your blue legs and shoes. Thanks for the visit and I hope you have a great week!

  18. Love your cardi - you've made something special out of that. Thanks for visiting, have a great week, Hugs, Lynne #46

  19. WOW! Those tights and shoes are marvellous! Love them! What a fantastic colour. And your pockets on your cardigan - such a brilliant idea - are they pockets or just patches? They look great anyhow.
    Thanks for visiting me - sorry I am so late, been in bed ill but fine now.
    Hugs, Neet xx
