Mom and I have been busy this week … So much so that I’ve not gotten around to posting. We’ve got two kits cut and set aside, we shopped for backings for the tops she pieced since my last visit, and along with some other shopping we stopped at the cemetery to put some flowers on Dad’s grave.
We’ve also been cleaning out and decluttering – Mom’s been in the house for 53 years and while she’s not nearly as much of a packrat as I am, there’s a lot to go through. Here’s one item that I’ll be taking home with me later this year when I drive up – a quilt pieced by my grandmother and hand quilted by my Aunt Dot. I love it!
Mom also had a couple old cross stitch pillows she was going to throw out but I took them. I have a basket quilt that she’s made for me that is waiting for quilting and I think I can use one of them on the back. I just hate to throw away anything handmade!
