Why a Wife's Page
This is a website for my husband, Mike. I enjoyed creating it, and I enjoy maintaining it. Recently a family member saw the site for the first time and asked where MY site was...and I didn't have an answer for that! Long story short, I would much rather just have a little corner of Mike's site, so here it is, the Wife's Page.
I work full time at a 9 to 5 job, but in my spare time I like to sew. I also like to try to reuse things, recycle things, repurpose things so they won't end up in the landfill quite so fast. My crafty items here are mostly made from things I have rescued from their journey to the landfill. The feed sack tote bags are mostly from our own cat's food, but friends also give us bags when they can. We also make regular donations at a local cat rescue facility, Craft of Central Oregon (Cat Rescue Adoption and Foster Team), and they often have bags for us to use.
The American quilt is made of disigner fabric sample scraps and rescued American flags. The pet beds are from recaptured fabric, and new batting from a local bedspread manufacturer. Many beautiful, unused raw materials that were on their way to the landfill.
