It has taken a while, but the first clothes from my "piles of pink" are here and even listed! I absolutely am in love with the pants from the Vera scarves. I hadn't realized back in the 60s that she did cotton scarves. All my aunts had her other scarves and of course her table linens, but I saw little ruffle pants when I found these 2 scarves, and here they are!
I also have a lot of the vintage cotton eyelet fabrics which I've been collecting for years. I really like the peasant tops in it, and little ruffle pants too, but QUESTION! For you moms with little ones, do you think the little girls prefer a top with or without elastic around the empire waist. I could make the top more free flowing, but I am looking for feedback from moms!
On my table is a nearly finished Easter dress in froth of white embroidered dots on white and blue cotton and this amazing antique bird trim. Then I woke up this morning and could barely walk because of some back spasm I have never had before! Progress is slow. This has been a real challenging few months for me with my health still. But this morning in (IN)courage, I read "Come to me all you who are weary....and I will give you rest for your soul" It immediately made me think of this adorable freebie pic that Dawn at thefeatherednest had so graciously put out for us! I wanted to share it with any of you who may also be feeling the need for a big wing around you to give comfort to your soul. All is not as I had hoped and planned, but, as my friend Connie says, ALL IS WELL.
I am a grateful woman who has been/is being reImagined by my Creator. Much of what I make is from fabrics and trims that I have rescued and reImagined!! It fits my life story, and I am so grateful! Now I want to connect women with women who feel discarded, used up, or thrown away...to be a link of hope that God is in the business of reimagining!! No one in God's world is ever too broken, too used up; Each. one. of. us. matters. Deeply. to. God. I believe that we are all God's Reimagined Remnants & Treasures
