Most of them seem to have been written with Smaug in mind!

Seems like these would have been perfect for a word puzzle. ... Several months down the road you probably could still write one on it and I wouldn't rememer having read this.

My recent ancestors beat the panty hose book.

I own a quilt that is made from loud, obnoxious fabrics from the late 60's and early 70's, stuffed with panty hose and stitched together like a crazy quilt.

I asked my mother if I could have it because it truly has to be experienced to be believed.

Hmmmmmmm. I may have to post it on my profile! Stay tuned.

Kookoo, I made one of those in the '70s, dunno whatever happened to it. Sewed dozens of little 6X6 pockets, stuffed a pair of panty hose minus toes and elastic into each and stitched them all together. It was amazing - warm and cushy like a "puffy coat", washed easy and dried fast, weighed nothing for the bulk of it. I think my son took it with him to his grandmother's around the time I divorced his dad and I never got it back. Thought about making another one years ago but don't have either the patience or the pantyhose anymore.

Can't be too many like it....if I remember the 60's
and 70's not too many people were "quilting"

Nah. This quilt was *definitely* made by my great aunt.
