The story of some overalls

I felt it was necessary to post all these images together to tell the story of these overalls. The have somehow been in my life from the beginning and it's even documented. They had become too thin and soft to even wear but were too sentimental to toss. Luckily I had an idea.

Minneapolis circa 1978

Upstate NY circa 1982
Me in the garden: Milwaukee 2007

Our new quilt we commissioned from Cortney Heimerl: 2012

The overall's have found a new home. She even sewed the tag onto the back panel for extra sentimental value. The beautiful back fabric was found on a trip to Java and the tiny red squares in the center of each block were left over scraps from Aaron's grandmother fabric stash.

Over all, a happy ending & new beginning. Sorry, couldn't help myself.
