It was a good night to stay in and do craftwork, the temperature was *cold* and dropped to *shiver* by the time I went to sleep. This morning I awoke to *brrrrrr*.
My current project is a quilt made from vintage housedresses and aprons from the 40's and 50's. The pieces I have gathered are not in usable condition as clothing, but have sections that can be used as fabric. The concept of this quilt is to honor the women who maintained the household and baked the daily bread while their spouses toiled outside the home to be the breadwinners. From the clean, tidy houses they kept, to the starched shirts and the crocheted doilies, they created beauty. Therefore, let their legacy continue with something pretty made from their everyday apparel, the clothing that never left the house or backyard.
