Throughout my travels and connections with people, I come across some real gems. “Gems” meaning people who are kind and enthusiastic about what I do. The relationships I’ve established with them are wonderful and rewarding in such a way that I never experienced before, and I’m so very grateful for them.
Just the other day, one of these gems contacted me. Her husband had recently passed away, and she was downsizing. “I have a bunch of vintage fabrics I’m getting rid of and I’d like to give them to you”, was the voice on the other end of the phone (can’t say “line” here because more often than not, we no longer have “lines”). So she came by.
What I was given was over 15 pounds of fabric. How do I know it was over 15 pounds? I divided half of it up and sent it off to my sister in Oregon. A very expensive shipment, I’d say!
So what did I do? I got busy and washed them all out and put them on the line.
Do you see anything you recognize? Anything you like? What alerted me first was the little girl and boy fabric. Definitely pre-1960’s, and I’m sure you can figure out why.
So take a walk down Memory Lane and give yourself an opportunity to remind yourself of a past long ago.
