Woo hoo, thank you both!  Smiley  I haven't worn the skirt in AGES and I didn't think I was going to again.  I hope whoever gets it in the swap likes it as much as I do.

Did you get it cold or too hot?  And have you shaken the bottle?

Wow - I've never heard of Biscornu before.  Are they just decorative?  Can they be used as ornaments?

Regardless, yours are lovely!

Oh my.  I'm blinking away tears right now.  What a sad story and what a gorgeous quilt.  I know that her family will appreciate the thought, love and prayers that went into it and will treasure it.

For the current Friends of Craftster Raffle swap (come join!), I made a purse out of a skirt that I was going to donate.  The requirements were to upcycle something into something else.  I reused the outer skirt, the lining, and the tie.  The only thing I used that was new was the interfacing and thread. Cheesy  No pattern, just cut and went with what was in my head.  

After:

The tie was on the skirt as well, as a belt-like thing and I thought it was perfect to close the purse with.

Woo hoo!  I'm in. Cheesy  I hope what I made is up to snuff!

So here's my offering ... a medium-sized black purse with a tie close.  There are also seed beads decorating the embroidery.
