While picking up some more wool today (one of my favourite things to do - and one of my husbands worst nightmares), I discovered some candlewick fabric... and had a flashback into my childhood.
If you grew up in the 70's and 80's like me, I am sure you would have had a candlewick bedspread... they were all the rage! I even remember my parents double bed, sporting a bright orange candlewick bedspread - very, very cool.
Alas, candlewick fashion came and went (no offense to those of you who still have a dearly loved candlewick cover on your bed), but the memories stay strong, especially the memories of bits of fluff everywhere.
So, I just had to buy some of this retro fabric... and can foresee some snuggly "Candlewick Softies" coming very soon.
Feel free to share your candlewick memories...
