rainbow of denim

I know I am a day late, but I was away. I was visiting my sister and got to see my little nephew get confirmed. It was great to see everyone and get to spend time with my family. My mom really surprised me when she brought out two large boxes of jeans that she had picked up at her church sale for five dollars. She picked them from a quilter who could no longer work with denim because her hands were bothering her. I am excited to start working with them!

I love the gradations of pink she picked up. I am low on red and pink in general and have none in denim. I have an idea for these already. I also like all of the stripes.

In the group, I found two pairs that fit me:

I plan to dye these and use them for shorts.

As soon as I saw these orange ones, I was knew they would make a great skirt. They are very large, so I can completely rework them.  The color is wonderful!

Thanks, Mom. I love them all. I can’t wait to start working with them!
