What do we do with them?
How many of you remember your Grandmother’s or you Mom’s bedroom? Do you remember the dresser scarves that covered the dresser (where else would you put a dresser scarf?) or the dressing table that had a big mirror and a stool where you sat and looked in all the little decorated containers that held jewelry or tried the perfume? These scarves were hand embroidered by them or an aunt. Perhaps you remember watching Grandmother sit and embroider them?
Fast forward to today. A lot of us still have these scarves put away in a box or a bag. They are a precious memory of those wonderful days; however, since they do not fit in our décor, we only see them when we clean the basement (who does that very often?) How about taking these scarves or your favorite scarf and creating a beautiful adornment for your home that you can see every day or giving it to a daughter or granddaughter to cherish?
You can make a small bag, a pillow, a jewelry bag or a quilt, placemats or a table runner to not only warm your home but allow you to relive cherished memories every day.
