Altered Composition Journal 2

Vintage patterns tell a story.  I think that's why I love collecting and repurposing them, so that the past can stay alive and hopefully evoke pleasant thoughts while recalling fond memories.  I get excited when, after purchasing an old pattern at a thrift store, I peek in.  Sometimes there are little treasures to be had, which is usually in the form of a snippet of material or some newsprint the seamstress used to alter the pattern.  One time I found a piece of bright green and white polka dot material.  That's when my imagination runs away with me!  Who on earth would make that out of that?

Life is good!
