Tucked Away

My mom recently discovered this soft vintage flannel fabric when cleaning out her cedar chest. It must be at almost 30 years old now, having been purchased in the late '70s or early '80s as the backing fabric for our family's Christmas tree skirt.

I never let a year go by without a peek at those cute little vintage Santas. I'm touched that my mom thought to give me the last of this precious fabric.

There are 11 months left until Christmas. That leaves me with plenty of time to dream up a way to incorporate it into something new. Something to bring out with a smile each December then tuck away a few weeks later, along with a few new Christmas memories.
