So, anyone else totally overwhelmed?
Of course not, you're not the ones trying to sift through all this stuff in 98 degree weather!
I made it through one of the big boxes and 2 little ones.
The first little one has a complete set of tiered cake pans (circular) teeheehee.
In the big box I found some tiny embellishment things that'll be perfect for Nancy, a bunch of "antique" quilting magazines (80's) and the motherlode of buttons, zippers and notions. I don't know HOW she could have so much! I already have a tub full of buttons (mostly) and notions that came from her!! She has heavy weight zippers, regular weight zippers lightweight zippers in every color and size in there! I may never have to buy another zipper again!
But the real find of the day was this.
On the side (which she's covered in pics from magazines) it says: Janet (my mom)/Sarah (me) Quilt Tops
to my knowledge she never made me a quilt top.
What do I find when I open it???
This is the block that she removed from our quilt because it didn't match.
and under it??
I'll leave you with a happy thought,
my cannas are blooming.
and I put those purple Louisanna Irises in the ground and did some weeding of my little bed tonight.
