beauty in the old
memories of happy times
vintage style still fresh
Joining in with Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge:
Prompt words STYLE and FRESH
Our 52 Week Photo Challenge, prompt word this week: VINTAGE
This is a piece of fabric that my mother-in-law gave me when my son was born in 1976, it was an off-cut she had from when she made her own son’s (my husband) cot mattress cover in 1946. She knew I was interested in textiles and thought I might want to make something with it – I did – and then it seemed too precious to cut into!
I think the time has come! This needs to be used and I’m thinking that I will make something for each of my grandchildren using a little piece of it. Hence my commitment in my post 16 for 16 to make 9 pieces of textile art – one for each of them and one for me to keep.
