Comforting Light

This is the first paper pieced item I sewed: it's made from really old fabrics: scrounged items, old clothes and lightweight furnishing swatch samples in a mix of poly cottons and cottons.  I started it over 20 years ago before I had a cutter or cutting board without any idea what I was going to do with it as I couldn't afford wadding then! When I moved to my current house 17 years ago I lined it with an old sheet to turn it into a  door curtain.  It's really faded now.  I took it down when I re-decorated 3 years ago and discovered it again on Friday.  I love the way it looks with the light shining through it, so now its my bedroom curtain and faded or not, it's really comforting, and proof that I have always been a fabric hoarder!
