Strings and Scraps
The foundation material was part of the Key West stash my mother gave me. It was a plain lining material from a dress in the collection. Everything had been kept in a trunk in my parent's basement, packed with mothballs. Each time I iron the triangles, I can smell that trunk - and makes me think of my mother and grandmother. I know plenty of people who would wrinkle their nose at that scent, but it makes me smile as I iron each piece.
