2 boxes of vintage, retro scarves for my Etsy shop.
Tonight I was sorting thru the 50 to 75 scarves/sashes.
And at the bottom of the last box,
I caught a glimpse of a familiar OLD friend.
In the middles 80's I had a shop in Rotan, Texas.
We were in a tight place, waiting on his severance package.
We had no groceries and the water bill was past due and it was the last day
I sat at my sewing machine and I prayed.
For an idea of something that I could make and sell that day.
Something that I could make with the resources I had on hand.
I piddled on with whatever project it was that I was
and there, in a stack, were 3 old quilts.
They were nothing special - worn and raggedy,
neglected and left behind in the old house.
As I looked at them there was a nudge in my heart.
to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21
