Vintage Inspiration

Ok. Trying to work on quilts and gifts, but for some reason I can't keep on any one project. All day I have been dyeing fabric to get the perfect color of Haint blue. It's a low country thang! The Gullah people believe it wards off evil spirits or keeps you safe. Something like that. So needless to say, it takes a lot of patience to slowly get the perfect color. While I've been waiting, this sweet baby is calling my name. It was one of the chairs I inherited when I emptied one of my mother's warehouses. I'm thinking a scraps only project. I need to empty my ever-growing bin.
