Old and New


Encouraging words of the day:
I cried out to the Lord, and he answered me from his holy mountain.
~ Psalm 3:4, NLT

"A Peach in Stitches" is having a giveaway whereas you post pictures of your "Old and New" fabrics.  Well, my oldest fabric are the pieces of flannel that I bought to make pajamas for my oldest son when he was 4 years old.  He is now 44 years old so this fabric is 40 years old.  I must have bought LOTS of this fabric since I made the pjs and still have about 2 yards of the stripe and a yard of the print  left even after using pieces to make little flannel baby blanket backs throughout the years. 


 My newest fabrics are 3 pieces large enough to make 3 aprons.  I even have the pattern and plan to get to this project sometime during my vast amounts of free time…

You could win a goodie package from Hawaii, including a calendar. - ends Dec.1st. 

That is all.

You know what is so neat about your oldest fabric is that it will be wonderful even for today! I think that's such cute fabric!

Oh my! When my girls were little I needed to make them some dresses so I took apart a skirt of mine that was about three yards gathered blue print. I made three dresses and still have some left over even after putting it into scrap quilts. If you are interested in the age, I made that skirt in seventh grade home ec. I was about 11 at the time so that hunk of cloth has to be well over 60!
