OMC and his renovated jacketHere’s Old Man Crow wearing his well worn denim jacket resplendent with lots of spider web stitching!
jacket-detailthe corner where the pocket is attached was very thin and required blanket stitched sutures to hold the cloth together, it’s over 30 years old!
sleeve-and-toolsthose little scissors and that fine crochet hook have been invaluable !
the biggest hole was in the right hand sleeve so I turned it into needle lace, the lace lessons in Karen Ruane’s Simply Stitch 3 course have really come in handy!

      Old Man Crow came home from the pub all excited with a vision of those glasses dancing in his head a few weeks ago, he was thinking of something with jam jar lids held together with rivets and wrapped wire so I found those glasses & he’s stoked!

    Wish you a peacefull new years eve………….
