I just thought the utilitarian denim knee patches needed a little whimsy, so I appliqued the flannel scraps of owls on top. Ben says they're playing peek-a-boo. I'm so glad I got a picture when he put his shoes on by himself, bless him.
I am a wife and mother of two. I am a stay-at-home mom, part time cookbook editor, a Mennonite, and a city dweller. I like to make things (see the blog categories below). This blog is a record of what I make and the ways I try to be thrifty. Welcome!
"Thrift is the really romantic thing; economy is more romantic than extravagance...thrift is poetic because it is creative; waste is unpoetic because it is waste...if a man could undertake to make use of all the things in his dustbin, he would be a broader genius than Shakespeare."
