A Piece of History

If it was my last day on Earth, treat it like my first.
Go out the way I came in.
So innocent, so pure, with no thoughts of insecurity
Live life to the fullest, be what I want to be.
     ~ Wyclef Jean, "Heaven's in New York"

One persons trash is another persons treasure. I believe that is how the saying goes.  That is exactly what happened to me this week.  My neighbor cleaned out her craft room and called to see if I would like any of her discarded fabrics.  So I of course said I would be right over!

Along with various fabrics she was also getting rid of this small quilt.  This quilt was made from a 100 pound flour sack.  I have not idea how old it is or if it is even old.  I just thought it was too cute to let go.

I took it with me but haven't figured out what I am going to do with it either.  I was thinking about cutting it and making something else out of it.  I thought it was me SO SO SO cute as an apron.  I can cut off the faded red and add red binding all around it.

This will be a nice addition to my kitchen it I get to that project.  How many am I currently working on?!
