~ Threadbared ~

Vince and I were out today and we went to the Dollar Tree to get some Christmas bags and a few other things.  I went down the aisle where they have books and I found this one.  It's called "Threadbared - Decades of Don'ts - from the sewing and crafting world".  It is written by Kimberly Wrenn and Mary Watkins.  The picture on the cover is worth the $1.00 purchase price for the laugh it gave me.  Here are a few more pictures:

This poor lady looks like she was in an accident of some sort.
I don't know what to say about these girls.

This is just plain awful.

Love the 'super hero' pose of the girl in the poncho.

The see-thru dress actually wouldn't be all that bad if the lady would of had enough sense to wear a slip.

All those Bigfoot sightings?  It's actually these people.

I like what the authors wrote about this thing:
"Crafty Mary Ann knew just how to keep her friend Robin from gnawing on the itchy stitches from her lady surgery."

This kind of reminds me of an octopus - missing 2 legs of course.

Such a handsome family.

This is absolutely my favorite one in the whole book.

  8. I think I remember some of those from when I was a teenager! Very stylish then, but looking back....very funny!
