As the babies grow up and out of their clothes I separate them into two piles:
- The “good” clothes for sending on to others
- The “gross” clothes for rags or rubbish.
But I have found a new purpose for pile number 2. Inspired by this old book of mine “All by Herself” I am harvesting all the tricky little snaps, zips, belt loops and buckles from the clothes in order to make some kind of challenging quilt mat or book. It will take a while to collect the bits, but I can wait: after all, the babies will keep on growing.
