While we were visiting my Grandma, she seized the opportunity to clean out some of her closets, drawers, nooks and cubbyholes and sent us home with as much stuff as would fit in (and on top of) our car. A large part of this new-found treasure of ours is fabric that Grandma has collected over the years. Not only did she used to sew clothes for the family, but she also enjoys quilting.
In addition to the fabric, I was delighted to take possession of a bunch of old sewing patterns Grandma had stashed away. Some of the patterns are at least forty years old and I love looking at the illustrations on the packages.
I don’t know what I’m going to do with the patterns, but for now they will fit nicely in my growing collection. I do have an idea for a project, but you’ll have to wait and see what I’ve got up my sleeve!
