A Completed Project

Three weeks ago one of my older granddaughters gave me an unexpected late Christmas gift.  Our family is growing and I thought it was understood that presents would only be bought for the smallest grandchildren and the greats.  Well, anyway, I bought for her baby but not for them.  So,,,,, I came home and crocheted an afghan.  It is Christmas colors and hopefully she will enjoy it for a little  while before our 100 degree weather returns.  Tonight the lowest temperature is 27, so I need to get this to her quickly.

Oh no, the Hospice items are in the background !!!!
Thanks for stopping by, have a blessed evening.

Estate sale finds...

I was lucky to be one of the first people preview an estate sale.
 There were quilts and a chenille bedspread !!!  She charged $10.00 for each piece, and I gladly paid that and QUICKLY loaded them into my car.

The hexagon quilt has been used and loved, but the colors are still pretty.  The binding can be replaced or sewn over.  A hexagon quilt is on my to-do list, it would be a great carry along project while going to doctor appointments.

The next quilt is in prime condition and apparently was a present to the lady.  She was involved in sorority functions and it was presented to her.  The butterflies are so cute, and each is embroidered differently, with the seamstresses name on the blocks. 

Both quilts are large enough for a queen bed and I'm anxious to use them.  I also bought a sewing box, never used, so it makes me wonder if the owner sewed at all.  She has a daughter but obviously she wasn't interested in the quilts.  Truthfully, I didn't need them either but couldn't leave them behind.

God bless and hope y'all have a great evening.
