Something old...






...became something new. "It" was a dress that mom had sewed herself for a University Formal Dance that she and my Dad (boyfriend and girlfriend at the time) had attended. Years later, mom altered the dress and made it into a long skirt. I grew up, found the skirt and loved the fabric. Mom gave it to me and so it has been in my possession for many years, just waiting for me to use it! Today was the day...I used the fabric to make a medium sized wristlet. I am giving it to my mom. After all it is sentimental...and should bring back some memories of how my parents journey together began. Selfishly, I am happy...I still have some fabric left. I can make some more pretty things, for myself, or to sell.
