The “Spring Cleaning” bug has bitten me and I’ve been having a bit of a tidy up in the spare room where I keep my fabrics. And the books, patterns, magazines and bags and bags of “stuff”. I came across a bag of fabric that I had completely forgotten about.
Inside were several lengths of coordinating fabrics I had purchased for a project, plus the pattern. My mother had always loved dolphins, and I had planned to make her an undersea quilt with appliquéd grey dolphins someday. But I never quite got around to making it, in fact to be completely honest, I had forgotten all about buying those fabrics. She passed away some years ago, and finding the fabrics today has given me an attack of the guilts. I feel bad – but I think she had forgotten all about the quilt too.
Perhaps I’ll never use these fabrics the way I originally intended. I’ve smoothed them out, refolded them, and put them away again. Who knows what will happen to them now? We’ll have to wait and see.
