Vintage recycling

Even though I gave away all my scraps so I could use the "good stuff" before I age out, things do not seem to change around here.  In keeping with my "no think" relaxation phase, I made the following:  Potholders from a child's patchwork vintage skirt (ugly as sin)  from Goodwill...I decided to practice free motion quilting on them.  Relaxing, fun and cheap..recycling...not the "good stuff" ....but then, maybe....
Then I found a ratty old plastic bib.  I decided that I just could not throw it away.  So I did a little fabric therapy on it with zigzagged edges.  Someone at the Goodwill will hopefully enjoy it.  Giving back, you know!

To bed with me before I ruin all this peace with another project.

The potholders are looking good as new! They're pretty, and at the same time, they have a touch of vintage. The color green from the bib is looking cute, especially those little puppies. It's good to hear you are having fun while doing your crafts.
