So many textiles, so little time....

I collected these little treasures over the summer and they have been
screaming at me to do something with them.
The wool blanket on the bottom is to die's the softest wool blanket
I've ever had and the satin border is hand stitched.
I found it in a little antique shop in Pentwater, Michigan.

The coverlets are good and worn so I will cut them up.
The coverlet on the top also has a bird design that I'm really excited about.....
I'm not too crazy about the roses.

And the feed sacks are my favorite little treasures.
They have good printed labels and are nice and thick.
I plan to do a little wool applique on them
and make them into Sewing Pouches and Sampler Bags.

I've been staring at this stack for a good month now
and I'm itching to start cutting and stitching.

The green wool blanket will make the best Halloween Sampler Bags....
and maybe even a Sewing Pouch.
I can just picture the drab green wool on the outside
with a good early sampler done in old browns, black and even a dirty pumpkin color....
and maybe a worn brown cotton fabric on the inside.

I'll take some of the finished bags to the September show at Malabar Farm in Ohio....
~In The Spirit of Friends~
And I'll put some on my website too.

My poor brain is bursting with ideas...I can't wait to finish a couple to show you.

Smiles to you my friend....

LOVE your new textiles! I just received a feedsack for my birthday that I love... Your coverlets are beautiful - I've been looking for some cutter pieces myself, but all that I have found have been too nice to cut :)
Blessings, Patti
