I decided to check out the local Op Shops (charity stores) to see if I had left my mojo there!
Well... I didn't find it... surprise, surprise...
but I did find some other treasures to recycle:
Don't these colourful wooden beads look like SMARTIES on a string??? I thought they were totally adorable. The colours were so bright and cheery and delicious looking... they made me smile... so I decided immediately that I had to have them...
But when I tried to take then down from the rack at the store, I couldn't get them untangled from some of the other necklaces. After a few moments of total frustration, I realised that the three sets of beads has been bundled together for sale... so I also scored these two sets.
then I found this crocheted top in hot pink wool
this hand made purple wool vest with magnificent rose buttons on it... yes... I know it doesn't look purple, but it is!
this light ash coloured top... some kind of blend... very soft to the touch
this hairy hand knitted neutral jumper
this variegated brown top, in an acrylic/wool/polyester blend... the texture of the yarn may make it difficult to unravel, but I loved the yarn, so I wanted to give it a go
this hand knit maroon wool jumper, with giant buttons... they're a pearly type of finish, not exactly sure what you'd call them... but I can see them becoming enormous eyes on a creature at some stage later in their life
don't tell anyone, but that sounded like the slightest hint of inspiration... my MOJO is around here SOMEWHERE!
and finally, this hand made navy vest
that will keep me busy for a while...
(even if I did feel like a bit of a fruit cake... buying a mass of winter jumpers in the sweltering heat today!)
