This morning we went into town to do a little bit of shopping. While I was waiting for the chemist to fill scripts, I went next door to the opportunity shop to have a little look see. Whilst I was beowsing, I saw some old knitting machine cards. You know, from those knitting machines we all thought were really great in the '70s? I didn't think much about it, but as I was looking at them I had a what if moment.
I suppose that is how those old machines worked out what to knit. They reminded me of the key punch cards I had to use at university to write programs for computer science, lol. No keyboards and mouses in those days!
Anyway, I couldn't wait to get home with them. I got out my journals and paints and went to work!
Of course after I sprayed them, there was a ton of paint on the top, so waste not want not,
I showed my hubby what I had done and he suggested that I could make more of them with different designs with my silhouette as well. What a creative hubby I have!
So I am quite happy with my 50 cent purchase this morning. That is why I love junk shops.
You never know what you will find, or what you can use it for.
