How long has it been since I shared a picture of quilts? These are older quilts but . . they’re quilts!
Vince told me he found a box upstairs in the shop and it had a couple of quilts in it. I cannot imagine how a box of quilts got let upstairs for nine years! Mice, bugs, heat . . not good. Vince assured me that the box had not had any mice in it (I don’t believe it!) but there were some dirt dauber nests on some of the quilts. Those darned things carried their little mud balls and found a spot where they could get into the box.
There were actually five quilts in the box. I put two in the washer and took pictures of the other three. Now, two more have been washed. I’ll get pictures of the first two tomorrow.
This one may be big enough for a queen bed so it may go on our bed.
This one is small . . obviously just using some scraps.
This is one I made in several different color combinations. Here it is in my favorite purple/green/gold combo.
I suppose, when I can not see five quilts for nine years and not even miss them, that I have too many quilts.
The good news is that also in the box was a down comforter that I had searched for since we left MO nine years ago. It’s lightweight but yet very warm. Since we like to sleep with the windows open on cold nights in Texas, I had wished for that comforter and gave up on ever finding it but there it was . . in the bottom of that box!
That gives me hope that I will find the cookie molds . . some day.
