Well I haven't participated in a Show and Tell Friday down at "There is No Place Like Home", for quite awhile - but I recently acquired something that I wanted to share.
Here it is:
Well it is old - about 160 years old. It is scrap of fabric saved from my husbands' great-great-great grandma's wedding dress!
In case your monitor doesn't show the true colors - it is a deep olive green with two shades of purple flowers with gold colored leaves. How fun to think that this piece of fabric has been saved for so many years!
Now my question is - what can I do with this bit of fabric? I want to preserve this - but not sure how I can do that. I am not terribly crafty - but I thought I could use it in a scrapbooking page along with some information about our ancestor etc. Any ideas?
