Sunday Stills ~ Fabric

The world is made of fabric...it's everywhere!!! This was a very fun challenge; thanks Ed!

Not only do I get to show off my favorite wild rag, but the beautiful custom made silver tie slide was my surprise Christmas present from My Man. The slide was made by Pat Horlacher...farrier and silversmith.

Texture and colors...a set of kitchen towels I made.

My favorite blanket. Vintage from the early 1960's. My mother made this quilt, and I don't remember ever being without it. When I'm feeling sick, I still grab this quilt, wrap it around me and curl up on the couch. I call it my Magic Pink Blanket.

Wild rags...one can never have too many...this is just a few of ours.

Check out the other fabric photo links in the comments at Sunday Stills!


  1. OK, I'm confused, why are you calling these beautiful fabrics "rags"???

  2. Your wild rags look pressed.... did you press them for their photo shoot? Mine are wrinkled.

    Great memos to your choices of fabric.

    @dibear. These 'rags' are silk squares of fabric worn as a neckerchief. A cowboy tie, if you will, 100% silk is a preferred fabric because it breathes and is warm in winter and cool in summer. Wild rags range in size from about 36 inches to 54 inches. Sometimes the fabric is flashy and vibrant sometimes dark and unobtrusive, it lets one show their personality and one can not have too many. I think husband and I have 25 or more.

  3. Very pretty.They also keep hay from going down the front of your clothes when feeding cows!

  4. Well done! Love your tie slide too- very nice work. I like the fabric design on your kitchen towels too.
