Today I continue my quest in creating and posting one block a day of the fabulous That Town And Country Quilt by the lovely Susan Claire. This is day sixty-two of that project.
I find it funny that a diaper pin is the icon on this little store.
How many people under the age of 40 have seen a diaper pin in reality?
I used them to diaper my sons. I washed and folded 4 dozen diapers every day. I’d fold two together, they were made of double gauze, white of course. Now I sell double gauze in the shop with fun prints and no one is making diapers.
When my son who farms told me 11 years ago they were going to use cloth diapers, I said “Are you sure?” Thinking how much work it was and knowing how super busy they are.
My daughter-in-law told me they were different now. She said no diaper pins, they have snaps and no folding. I was skeptical. But 4 kids later everybody is out of diapers and only a few were worn out before the end.
This little shop has a great selection of new precious garments and a big part of the space is devoted to gently used clothing. I thought this was a great idea because the little darlings are in them for such a short time.
