I'm Here But Sorta Not. Lookie! I Made a Scooter!

The wrench is mine too 
Good Morning my friends! This isn't a real post. Why? Because Jessica of Mad in Crafts  asked me to guest post on her blog! I'm really posting over at  Mad in Crafts. I'm only Sorta posting on Condo Blues.

I love the clothes, and mid century modern style that is Mad Men.(I'm not fond of the social not PC politics though.) How could I not participate in a Mad for Mad Men party to celebrate the return of Mad Men to TV?

I did it in that sneaky green way you all know and love too.

To celebrate the show, I recreated Peggy’s scooter from the Season 4 episode The Chrysanthemum and the Sword using a popular craft of the 1960’s –embroidery – on something every kitchen in the 1960’s had and used regularly – flour sack kitchen towels. Paper towels are sooo not 1963!

Blitzkrieg helped.

This woman would be lost without my art direction and me.

Jump on over to Mad In Crafts for the easy peasy tutorial and cute Blitzkrieg pics. While you're at it, help me thank Jessica by giving her some comment love!
