This is the pile of Dwayne's old work shirts that I've been collecting for several years now. I've been saving these shirts in order to cut them up into patches to make quilts for our girls "so they can wrap up and have snuggles and hugs from their Daddy anytime." So, with the cold weather or this pregnancy... or both, I am feeling more domestic, the collection is big enough, and so, I am going to start cutting.
Some of the shirts were retired cause they got too small, others ripped somewhere that made them impossible to mend and others may only be missing a button, truthfully. I confess. This project may have made me too eager to retire his shirts without trying to fix them when I could have, so that I could just add more fabric to my collection.
