Unoriginal as ever.

I really and truly had plans for more inspired and inspiring blogging this week, but I’ve been in a physical and mental funk lately, made worse by the fact that I have not been able to leave the house (apart from walking to Mass on Sunday) in more than 4 days.

So!  I decided to jump on Ana’s bandwagon and share my very unoriginal craft/alteration project.  Now Ana, I know you made it quite clear that it did not have to be Valentine’s Day related, but you see, I’m a bit of a holiday fanatic, and I miss using my preschool class and classroom as an outlet for my outrageous holiday fervor.  You’re welcome, blog.

So here it is:

Felt Heart Applique Elbow Patch Cardigan.  Whew!

Several MILLION versions of this project can be found on pinterest.  I specifically remember Misty doing this on her old blog last year… Anywho, being the sucker I am for all things holiday themed,  and since I already had an old gray Target cardigan and red felt lying around (I would!),I felt called to give it a whirl.

Whoa there. Is that blanket stitch with contrasting pink embroidery floss?? Yes it is.

SK, after distracting herself for 2 minutes by utterly destroying the living room, came up to let me know what she thought of this silly project.

Mom bought herself another 2 minutes with the graham cracker…

But then she had to kick it up a notch with dried fruit and the jumping contraption.
