Lunchtime Reading

My days are so packed full with work and school, it’s rare that I get a chance to read. So I have started using my lunch break for just this purpose. I was really excited to receive my copy of Feedsacks: The Colorful History of a Frugal Fabric in yesterday’s mail. At almost 600 pages long it goes into a detailed history about one of the most clever and reuseable forms of packaging from the 1930’s through the 1960’s—the feed sack (or flour sack, or grain sack, or any other number of cotton-based sacks that were used to store and transport necessities at a time when paper and plastic were not yet popular). I think it’s time for lunch!
