A Satin Gift from Ms. Mary

A satin gift from Ms. Mary, originally uploaded by nkiblueeyes.

Look what I got on my last trip to Little Rock...

My friend Ms. Mary is a product of the Great Depression. Truth be told, she is a bit of a hoarder & cannot stand waste, so she got these scraps from a friend of hers who does alterations on prom dresses. These scraps would've been trash, but she saved them & used them to create these beautiful blocks and 20 more that she's keeping for herself.

I'll sash these with more satin to make myself a cool summer throw. I'm so tickled with these!
