First of all, I need to give a shout out to my Aunt Peggy who I understand has recently tuned in. Hey Aunt Peggy!
Anyway, I know everyone has had this moment were you are going through your families clothes and weeding out what is good enough to wear, sell, or give away. Well that is all fine and good, but what do you do with t shirts that are faded, holey, and otherwise ratty. Not good enough to keep, sell, or give away. Then there is the ever present guilt now associated with throwing things into the land fill. Bad, Bad, Bad. Well, for those of you who suffer from this and want to know what you can do about it, I might have an answer. Re purpose those t shirts into something else. Here is what I do:
Kind like peeling an apple and keeping the peeling whole. That same idea. Once rolled up this t shirt material can be used where you would use yarn, just make sure you use a larger size needle. What can you make from something like this? Well here is a hot pad I made from an old t shirt of mine
On the garden front I am happy to say I picked 3 lbs of blueberries today for my first picking of blueberries. So far so good. Everything seems to be rocking along. The list is still long on thing I need to do in the garden or outside in general, and it gets added to daily, but its great. It rained last night and is cloudy today so the plan for today is to bake bread for next week. I should be getting to that instead of loitering about here, but I wanted to share my pics. Hope everyone has a great day. Stay cool!
