    Thanks HilLesha! I sent an email over your way if you would like to be Featured too!

  2. Hi Jessica!
    Recently I was given by my 94 year old mother-in-law a bag and a box of her late sister’s doilies. I have used them to do repairs on a vintage patchwork coverlet my own 85 year old Mother made from her late Mother’s and my late Father’s clothing. It is an example of using things usefully from a bygone era and preserving family history.
