It Was Like Christmas in July

A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine brought several pieces of fabric that she didn't think she would ever use.  It was like having a Christmas gift in July!


I pressed them and sorted them into stacks of solids and prints.  Most were at least one yard in length, one even being five yards long, and as you can tell, several still had the paper wrapped around them.


My thoughts were whizzing!  Aprons?


Backings for baby quilts?

No gift could have pleased me more, so I gave one of my full aprons to her.

Isn't it nice when people share!

  8. I wanted to pop back over and tell you how sorry I am to hear you haven't had rain. It's either feast or famine clear across the country. We know what it's like. A few years ago we were in a drought for three years and everything dried up.We live in the Applachians in Western N.C. and it has been rainy since winter. We've had the wettest spring and summer since I can remember. But I try not to complain, God is the one with the plan and only he knows the reasons. I'm praying for ya'll to get rain really soon.. Hugs.
