Escavating Memories

Before I start babbling I want to encourage you to go check out the Woolie Flicker site!  I have been so busy that I was shocked at all the new quilt photos posted! you guys rock in getting a March UFO done and thank you for sharing...at least someone out there is getting some quilting time in...I gotta get going in order to post an April UFO!!

Yesterday I spent the day at the old house going through piles of stuff...kinda like an archaeologist.  I found this absolutely wonderful cookbook made by my youngest son when he was in the first grade!  It will take me a lot longer than I thought to excavate the house because I keep finding memories that require me to sit and reminisce.  I found some song lyrics written by HH 30 years ago???  actually made me teary.  We were broke, working hard, raising a child and dreaming :)


...and then it happened!  I found another container of fabric!!!!!!!!!!!!!  NO!!!!!!!!!!  I thought I had moved and unearthed it all.  But like the tomb of King Tut...this house keeps revealing more riches, lol.  This bucket was filled with flannel for backings?!  It was not located in my sewing room but at the bottom of the linen closet.  I swear I am going to keep my new command center organized and know where each and every piece of fiber is located!


I love making promises that provide a challenge!
