This quilt was made by Connie's aunt who was a very frugal woman. When looking at it up close I noticed the entire formation of the star was pieced differently. Then she laid it on a white background and appliqued it on. Gee, we all thought we had a new idea when piecing our quilts randomly and all it took was being frugal and using everything we have. When I held the quilt up to a window you could see the seeds from the cotton batting. I love these old kind of quilts, and because it was so big I had to stand and shoot the picture from upstairs.
Here we are 40 years after graduating from high school. From left to right, me, Connie, Melinda and Jill.
Jill modeling glasses....I could always get her to do anything, even be my room mate in college.
This was painted on a canvas cloth and hung behind the cash register in a funky shop in Old Colorado City. I thought it was marvelous!!!
This was the dressing room....to fun!
We saw repurposed things every where. This flower was made from newspaper and tissue paper. I also noticed several women's stores with repurposed clothing. It was inspiring.
LIFE IS GOOD...
