My aunt recently visited and brought along some very special items from my grandmother's house. Amongst the envelopes of family photos and mementos, there were also a few treasures I thought I'd share with you all, knowing you would appreciate them the way I do.
This quilt top was probably the most amazing.
This was started by my great grandmother. It's completely hand made from various scraps of fabric. I'm not sure if you can see the stitches, but all of the pieces have been hand sewn together....very impressive to me!
My aunt says it's now up to me to finish it. I certainly want to preserve this work, but it will not be a project I attempt until after a bit of quilting practice myself!
She also brought 2 older model sewing machines for my girls so they could each have their own machines to learn on. They were of course thrilled!
It's very special to have these items that belonged to my grandmother. It will be a nice way to remember her while doing something I love to do.
