Shelli's Blast from the Past

Shelli brought in projects she made over 30 years ago. Back then the Granny Square was all the rage and there were many inventive ways of using it. I think her vest and purse are cooly retro and I love the colors. The dyes were new that could get these intense colors, although there was little restraint on what shades were put together. I think Shelli's items are very tasteful and wearable for today. She and i talked about the thing we made years ago but actually wore out and so have long faded away. We're much better about documenting things nowadays, maybe too much so. But of course Shelli has been crafting for years and continues to do so. Just look at her  lovely baby blanket.
