Not only did Antoinette send the mug rugs -- she also sent an apron, a tote bag, and other delightful goodies. What a treat!
I "rescued" this at the Salvation Army yesterday. I did a burn test and it's all cotton. I think the label says "polyester cotton" as a disclaimer. This was likely one of a load of flatfolds that dime/variety stories still stock. (At least those variety stores that have fabric departments.) I bet it was never used because it was as ugly then as it is now. ("Puce" is a purply-brown that is French for "flea color." This is puce.)
|Nice batiks among the assortment|
Here is my BBS stash -- an accumulation from many seasons. I have used a lot of the squares over the years. They are handy when I need a little of this, or a little of that, or some variety of something. One year I made a jacket out of the baseball-themed squares. (Photo in this post .)
