    Irulan Rocks!

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    In early December I discovered moths had gotten into some of my cashmere and wool sweaters. Thom suggested I turn them into cycling jerseys. Well, I sew, but not that well and I knew I wouldn't wear them if I botched them. So I asked Penny to fix them up for me. For less than the cost of a new wool jersey, she turned my three holey sweaters into awesome cycling jerseys. I will be the most stylish chick on future rides.

    I hope this rain we're having goes away so I can show off my jerseys this weekend.

    Wow, a cashmere jersey.

    Will you wear pearls with it?

    <blush> thank you... gals, I have to tell you that those cashmere "jerseys" are so soft, that was such an excellent recycling idea!!! ( oo- sorry about the pun) The baby pink one will look excellent with pearls and a tiara.

    Yup, you do rock...

    I am always impressed with those who can sew so well. I have no gift for it...I seem to do better with a hammer and power tools than I do with a sewing machine. I was impressed with your website from the time I joined this group and have recently referred folks from another list I belong to to your site. They were
    looking for some custom style bike shorts...hope it works out!!

    Veronica...go with the tiara...it will look just smashing!!

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming: "Yeah Baby! What a Ride!"

    Sorry gals, but I'm not doing Cinderella. Party Pardee is the same day this year and it's a much prettier ride.
