feed sack christmas wreath

just one more thing to do with feed sack scraps

i put this together this morning

it is really against my nature to leave raw edges on things :)

crafting is actually a lot more fun if you let yourself go!
i love this! hope y'all do! xx c

farmhouse quilt

okay! i am so excited about these fabulous quilts i bought that came from remote kentucky farmsteads! mostly ca 1920s - i bought them because they are not perfect, intending to cut them up and make some pillows - here is the first one, all soaked and laundered and fresh as a daisy - now, could you cut this beauty up? i don't think i can do it - all the feed and flour sacks and the little handstitching and the old cotton batting - ahhhh heaven for this textile junkie! now, this is the main problem with why i am in the situation i am in - i cannot cut them, they are too precious! hence, the piles of chenille spreads, blankets and barkcloth fabric - but atleast i am an organized hoarder!
