A Long Way from Home

Lost and found....The skirt I bought for my daughter 30 years ago when my man and I worked counseling positions on the Miccosukee Indian reservation in Florida
 A Guatemalan dress
More Guatemala pieces
Hand stitched vintage Molas from Panama
Smaller Molas
Pieces from India
I know that somewhere, I also have cloth from Mexico and Istanbul.
Good thing I lost the parts to my bag...or I never would have found these things.
Really, maybe they should all have been in one place.
And...more of the non-stop, everlasting purple Rail Fence challenge.
I already have two pieces started with this.
A child's apron my grandmother made in Swedish colors.
I might put this into my WIP Swedish flag quilt.

It looks like tomorrow is February...so I will not have any more finishes for January
Instead more things to start and another dishevelment.
UGH..now my sewing room is an awful terrible no-good mess again..
Next time around,  I hope God gives me two gifts...organizational skills and music.
I just read still another article on saving everything....lets use it up ...so now more ideas besides the chair....Unfortunately, now I need an extension on my house to store my treasures..
Remember, my latest lesson...no trailer hitch on the hearse!!!!

The Mola is so special. Beautiful!

Good morning DIane. Sounds like you’re unearthing great treasures. I made big tote bags out of everything I found ( a few years ago) in my stuff. I gave them to everyone. Just one solution to new/old fabrics!!

A week ago I was going to clean up my sewing room, no such luck.
I am going to try to get at least 5 things a day or week to a charity shop.
Wish me luck.

These molas are gorgeous! I am working on using up what I have, but I can't resist buying new stuff so it is never ending.
