Blast from the Past!

Today I started cleaning, I say starting because I do that a lot. I start cleaning and never finish, lol.
I went into my storage drawer to see what was in there and found a few surprises.

One item I pulled out was my wool applique quilt, that I started last year. I want to finish it, so the pieces are all out and ready to sew the details and then I have to remember how I was going to piece it;)

Another item I dug out, was this vintage piece, lol. Yes, I made this ugly thing, years ago, in the 80's.
That was when I got my fabric from discount stores and used felt.
It was all done up like this, just needed the border to be sewed to the back, so today I did that.
Have no idea what I am going to do with it, definitely doesn't match my house and definitely cock eyed.
I have been staring at it and wondering if there is something I can do to improve it, but I think it is a lost cause.

And for those of you who need a dose of Moki, here her is in one of his rare moments, sleeping.
I finally moved the christmas things off the chest and the minute I put the kitty rug, my friend Kelley made me, he was on it.
Moki needs space to sleep, that boy is really long. Behind him is another ugly piece I did in the 80's. Had no idea what I was doing, just wanted to make a quilt. And tomorrow is the big day, another great contest, sponsored by CNS.

If you soak your felt piece and iron it with the steam on, I think you'll find it straightens out flat. Well worth a go.

Debbie, just remember history repeats itself. Hold on to those older pieces (they aren't ugly)... they will become popular again. Moki is just too darn cute laying on that kitty rug! :)

I don't think it's ugly! Love it. It's vintage! I did need a dose of Moki!

The bunny piece would look really cute as a punch needle design.
