Oh No! Improv!

If you're as old as the hills (like I am) you'll remember Mr. Bill.
Stupid-funny stop motion super-8 movie clips on the tv show Saturday Night Live in the 70s were as much a part of the social fabric then as 'yo whassup beyatch' is today. 

Well, my thrifting habit brought Mr. Bill back into my life, along with more fabric and more scissors, vintage clothes hangers, buttons and old plastic trays.
So in the spirit of making lemonade when life hands you nice, juicy lemons—I'm off on another round of improv piecing… (nicely explained here)
Hand sewing and improv piecing are the two most relaxing things in my crafty repertoire.
