I did it
I found this vintage cashmere blend sweater in the bottom of a drawer...holey and stained. I believe it was one of several that my mom brought into the country after her marriage. I've been hoarding it for years despite the ill-fit and the color (the butter yellow washes me out) and the brightness of the embroidered flowers...so I threw it in the washer to shrink it and took a pair of scissor to it.
Chubby, flowery pin cushions! So decadent...I keep rubbing them against my cheek! I'm keeping one with larger motifs for myself (to finally replace my red tomato) but the rest go in the shop.
This is also my entry for favorite (for this week at least :)) for whiplash.
