Remnants

My friend Alexandra gave me a bag of remnants that she, in turn, had gotten from a friend. I was moved by how each piece of fabric had been washed, ironed, and folded.

Summertime Spread

Because of COVID-19, this summer we will be forced to stay in Rome–something we don’t normally do. So we are not prepared for the hot weather here.  Our bedspread is too heavy for summer temperatures. Searching for a substitute, I discovered an unfinished project stashed in a closet—a patchwork quilt using The Man’s old shirts, boxers, and jeans. Will it get finished this summer? I certainly hope so!
