Thanks for all of your fabulous suggestions about what to do with the dino print cotton! So many ideas and such encouragement.
Sadly, not everyone thinks this is such a great investment. I don’t want to point fingers in any particular direction (like, Scotland) but fellow bloggers who shall go unnamed (beginning with ‘Roo’ and ending in ‘doo’) have gently questioned (nay, openly mocked) my dino print cotton.
All I can say is: ‘Tell me I can’t do something, and by all that is legal, I shall!’
Fortunately, other readers are more attuned to my … aesthetic.
Lynn sent over the above knitting pattern* and suggested I could make use of it. A dino sweater to go with my dino skirt/pyjama bottoms/tote bag? Spikes running down my arm? Dino spectacles on my hip? What is not to like people?!!!
Lynn, you’re a woman of vision. My sewing and knitting may be about to come together in beautiful union…
Roobeedoo? Don’t say a word. Not. A. Squeak…!
