Oldies but Goodies?

I was rummaging through the trunk and found some things I had forgotten about.
That is what happens when you buy things with the intention of making something and then forgot what it was;)
I have some yardage of materials I bought on the dollar table, and some will make great quilt backings.

This first piece is about two yards. I thought it would make a good tablecloth, well you can see it didn't make it on the table.
So, wondering what I can make with it, thinking some curtain toppers might be nice.

Then I pulled this piece out. I bought it 18 years ago, along with a floral one. I love bargains and they were on sale. I started painting it, but not sure why I never finished it. It is a bit bright for my tastes now, but maybe if I finish it and then antique it, it would make a nice floor rug. For where, I have no idea, lol.

I love rediscovering old treasures, but, like you, I am getting alot of things that had a purpose that has been forgotten. Sometimes the new project is better than the original intended one anyway.

I have a stash of oldies and yes I still consider them goodies. The cats are going to make a wonderful floor cloth.
