My mother and I tend to do a sort of delayed "collaboration" on many of my sewing projects.  She weaves the fabric, then about a decade later (give or take) I take up sewing seriously and she gives me the pieces of fabric she hasn't touched in years to make something pretty with.  I just finished this one, and it needs a little more attention to details, but overall I am so pleased with how it turned out.  The birdy fabric coordinates with the handwoven so well, I was amazed since I didn't take the handwoven with me to the fabric store.  The pattern is Simplicity 2617, view D, and I think I will be making more from this pattern.

Thanks!  Luckily, her stash doesn't go back to the 70's. *shudder*
