Eco--Been Around a Long Time

That's right, eco is nothing new. Especially our grandparents (those of us old enough, our parents too) were eco when eco wasn't cool. My Grandmother used to make our dresses out of feed sacks. In case any of you are wondering what feed sacks are, they are the bags feed came in for livestock on the farm. Sometimes it was just plain white muslin and she made dishtowels and dishcloths out of those and sometimes tablecloths. I still have on she made.
But other feed sacks were very pretty prints, I happen to have one of those as well. They
are my textile treasures. So that's it for now. Check in for other eco news as well as other natural things. Eco to you!!!
