    It's a gloomy day here in North Carolina, so I thought I'd post a few laughs for everyone today. I sometimes get ideas and actually feel compelled to carry them out...Last spring I thought about buying those topsy turvy tomato hangers but decided not to because they were pricey and I'm a skinflint...I mean I'm very frugal so I cam home and created 'Tomato Pants'! I got a nice crop of tomatoes from them too! But not without some problems... The denim started disintegrating so I made some 'chaps' from some outdoor fabric and they lasted the rest of the summer! I have a similar idea this year but with improvements....
    And....because I love gardening and it is sooooo hot in NC in the summertime, I created some soft cotton bras from a 3 pack of 'Granny Panties'. I know they are funny looking, but OMG they are soooooo comfy! I've had so many people ask me how to make these, I actually put a tutorial of them on my blog!

    about 6 weeks later....The begonias in the top got really big!

    How very creative! I can't imagine having it actually work, you must have a green thumb as well as being a great quilter!

    Who knows where ideas come from? I just knew I wanted something cooler that a 'regular' bra but not tight and binding like a jog bra....

    I love this. You are a VERY creative person. I went to your blog and could not find anything on "Tomato Pants". Can you please tell me more about it. I would love to do this as well. However I live in AZ and it might be to late out here already. :oops:
