I have always loved taking something old and unused and making something new out of it. Several of my friends also do that, such as taking old furniture pieces and making something beautiful and useful out of them, and family using scraps of old shirts or clothing items and making lap quilts out of them. Grandma Smith used to make quilts out of scraps of material that she had used for making other things over the years. She made a small baby quilt for one of my daughters, and I loved recognizing the pieces she used and remembering what she had made out of the fabric. There are many memories attached to the repurposed items.
