Julia is having a challenge for herself and has asked others to join in....she is sewing from stash and not buying new fabric. I have another challenge for myself and that is to use the fabric I have been saving and loving. I have saved it so long that it is now called Vintage fabric:) The bits of this fabric were bought 25 years ago at the beloved, but now defunct, Mae's discount warehouse in Miami. I love it so and finally used it tonight. I have always had a great memory. I was afraid that my concussion might have interfered...but I am delighted that I did not have to audition fabric for this border, I knew in my heart that this was the one and where to get it in my stash and that I was going to use it finally. This awareness is making up for my adrenaline rush of losing my meatloaf to that dog!! I am grateful.
The girl fabric below is probably from the same time frame. Marie gave it to me when we both lived in Miami...maybe it came from Mae's too. Marie, give a shout on the comment box if you remember where it came from...and you can see that I still love it so and am now going to use it on the back of my new one-patch. Glad I kept it all because after 25 years, turquoise is making a comeback. Can you imagine keeping fabric so long that it becomes Vintage?????
ok...it is all out of my system...I will show you the finished without design wall top tomorrow. I want to take a picture of it in the daylight and I am getting the sense that I may be over doing it. So I had better go to bed.
