How crafty are you? - Creative Mending

As you've probably guessed I like to reduce, reuse and recycle, the war time ethic of make do and mend was so right, here's a little quiz to test your recycle style.

Q. You get a large moth hole in your favourite sweater what do you do?

a. Bin it, you don't know one end of a needle from the other.
b. Donate it to a thrift store, it still has some use.
c, Your brain goes into creative overdrive thinking of all the crafty ways you can camouflage or compliment this new hole.

If you answered a - You may possibly have come to the wrong blog,  overspenders anonymous is down the hall. (0 points)

If you answered b - Yay you for considering that the sweater has a usable life after you're done with it, take a dose of Ruby murrays Musings once a day, the craftiness should start rubbing off on you within 2 weeks. (5 points)

If you answered c - GO STRAIGHT TO THIS LINK  (10 Points)http://www.craftleftovers.com/blog/archives/6296

Can I just say that this site is so inspirational, that I am as we speak ordering my adjustable dressmakers dummy in the hopes that this will turn me into a cool designer of fashion. Keep it up I keep an eye on whats new all through my day.

Awwww thanks Jenny, root through that wardrobe, get sewing, and get down to the nearest thrift store, even if you think that they only sell dead people stuff (like my hubster), you gotta sort through the trash to get to the treasures! x
