OLD FABRIC........














One of the things that really melts my heart is old blue fabric...These are from the 1800's...Some have dirt, holes, wear,etc...But they are wonderful!!!...I take pleasure in just looking at them and feeling the fabric and wondering on what occasion these were used....Cut from a favorite Sunday dress, a child's favorite dress, an old apron, an old worn quilt...What stories these fabrics could tell...War, romance, heartache, laughter, drought, such hardships, but such joy!!

I have some special patterns that I've collected like Stacy Nash, etc. that I've wanted to use very special old worn fabric on...I also want to make special ones that honor women of my past to hand down to my children and their children.....

And you might see a piece of it shared with you on a future offering...

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!~~hugs,Jen
