This is what I've been working on the past couple of days. Patchwork, patchwork and more patchwork. I love digging into my fabric scraps and seeing the combinations I can come up with.
I remember reading a story in our Reader in elementary school about a little girl and I think they called her Patches. They were poor and they couldn't afford new clothes so her mom would put patches on the worn out areas of the little girls dresses. The kids at school made fun of her and called her Patches. Her mom surprised her one day by putting little animal shaped patches on her clothes instead of regular patches and the little girl felt so special and the kids loved these patches. Anyway, I think of that story when I go through my fabric scraps and cut out patches.
