What's old is new again

   My favorite vest has been falling to pieces. It had been snagged on to many barbed wire fences I have scrambled through while out on adventure. The duct tape I had been trying to hold the feathers in with was failing.
     This Marmot vest was found at a yard sale years ago and has kept me cozy and warm on my adventures ever since, skating, skiing, hiking and exploring. Something had to be done to save it!
      My mind turned to the Pendleton Wool remnants I had stuffed in my closet. My friend Jan and I made a trip to the Pendleton Woolen Mills and where lucky enough to be there at the right time to take a tour and purchase these wonderful wool scraps. I found the perfect piece to complement my vest and got busy sewing.
I see many more adventures in our future.


  1. Cute! And I bet your vest is very happy as well!

  2. Ok, so I think I need to start hanging out with a few of you who blog as you seem to be able to do anything. Now I'm sure I can duct tape, but that's a negative on the sewing. Love the color, looks great!
