A couple of weeks ago, Amy from Happy Things offered up her scrap bags for lottery. I put my name in the hat and won! btw, no need to tell Greg any of this, MY scraps sit untouched in his office. Amy’s creations are always wonderful and her fabrics are BEAUTIFUL so I had to take a shot at them. I certainly didn’t need more scraps and ended up feeling a bit overindulgent in winning them so I told myself I’d put them to use right away. That project is coming along nicely and I’ll share it tomorrow.
It’s interesting to receive someone else’s scraps. I feel like I know Amy a little bit better than I did before. She’s a good mother. There are lots of pink flowers, hearts, poodles, rubber duckies and cats on her fabrics. She is a very nice person. She paid over $6 to send a package of fabric bits to someone she doesn’t know. She’s a good seamstress. All of her scraps came from washed and pressed fabrics. She’s a happy person. The color of her textiles are bright, colorful and cheery. I feel lucky to have been a little part of her generosity. Thank you my dear.
Amy also included this groovy pattern:
I immediately ran for the photo album. Yep, 1974 baby. Me and my sister Anna on a family vacation in Florida. My grandmother made me that top and I adored it. Mom, can you confirm that I tried to wear it everyday on that vacation? I’m so glad I have a picture of myself in it. I may just have to make this pattern up for old times sake. I know Caitlin won’t wear it but Leil might be convinced.
