Felted Noro Swing Coat or Turncoat to Vest




This is the best I can do for an image this morning. Suffice to say that my dear Sonny at the cleaners tailored the swing coat with the arms I cut off, and it is now a usable, cut vest. It makes me ridiculously happy that I didnt' waste all my time, energy and MONEY on the swing coat. It just took me a while to figure out how to rescue it. From myself!

I'm taking a little car trip today. My buddy Huck is coming along. I'm a bit of a nervous nellie on the expressway, I know I have to grow up before I am a senior citizen!. So think of me please. I would do fine on the expressways if they couldn't have any trucks on them. I wish they were boulevards! Lake Shore Drive is my favorite road b/c no trucks are allowed. Do you have a no truck zone you love?


I'll talk to you in the comments. :)

I didn't know that no trucks were allowed on Lake Shore Drive.

Do you remember that song called Lake Shore Drive. It's a cool song and pretty obscure.

A semi pulled out of a residential neighborhood the other day and I gasped at the wrong-ness of it.

Great save! I'm glad you're going to be able to wear it now.

Very cool swing coat. Good luck driving. I just don't like driving at night anymore!

I-580 through Oakland is closed to trucks unless there's a big accident or delay on the other freeways. It's so much better than the alternative routes!

Love the vest! Great colors. My sentiments too about the expressway and the trucks. Hope your trip was fun...and good for you for being brave!

Love the vest! That was a great save and the colors are gorgeous. My thoughts are with you and Huck. I too hate driving the expressway and I don't think there are any "no truck" roads in Texas. Trucks are a way of life here.

Good Resue, Kathy B. Enjoy your day with Huck. Did you see that the movie "Marley and Me" is coming out on Christmas Day?
(my word verification today says
"folkse"!)
