I opened that box – finally

It was almost like opening Pandora’s’ box – till I took this really deep breath and calmed down some. I have mentioned earlier that I find it hard to get rid of things that could still be re-purposed. So I have been saving fabric – bits and pieces for decades now. Some got used up […]
