On a recent trip to our local hardware store, with the innocent intentions of purchasing some new white wall tires for my lovely vintage Schwinn bicycle, I ended up without said tires but with what is pictured below.
Wholly Cow, you are thinking that is a mass of fabric. Tis true, three bolts to be exact. Three of a zillion the proprietor of the hardware store had in her car. They are to become....slowly mind you... Dresses for Little Girls, a cause for the children of Africa. There is also Britches for Boys being made out of old t-shirts. Someone had donated bolts and bolts of fabric that was in their basement and that was unfortunately flooded. All of the fabric had to be washed. I used vinegar and baking soda to try to remove the odor. There is only a mild amount in the blue fabric which I am going to cut and hang on the line- let the sun do the work.
Nevertheless, I did not get a tire, they didn't have any....ahem... Who has time to ride bike when there is all this fabric to contend with.
As I think about all this I remember one that I have not even photographed that is a started but sitting in a drawer. Again, Yikes. I am thinking I should just add a category of started projects so that when I need a fix I can just look at all the stuff that I have not finished.
