I have been collecting fabric and odds and ends for years. Recently we started supporting a local cat rescue organization financially, and with cat beds. This led to the idea of selling some of the things that I enjoy creating.
I have always been passionate about keeping as much out of the landfills as possible. It's only logical that eventually there will be more trash than there is space to bury it, so I do all that I can to reuse, recycle, repurpose things before they end up in a landfill. American flags are a favorite medium, and I make portions of them into beautiful patriotic quilts.
