Grandma quilts have love in every stitch. ~Author Unknown
We were cleaning out the basement today...making room for the "upstairs" stuff to come downstairs. (The boys we're adopting will sleep upstairs in our bonus room. Follow us at: http://heavenstreasureadoption.blogspot.com/) As we cleaned, we found some "treasures" from days gone by...including an unfinished blanket that my great-grandmother "MaMaw Ruth" had started! Below are pictures...
|About 1/3 unfinished, but isn't it beautiful?|
|It still had the needle and yarn |
where she left it...
|$0.97 for a skein of yarn? I like that!|
Just looking at the beauty of it, the details, and thinking about the hours of patient needle work makes us appreciate it even more! It is indeed a treasure. I also think about the legacy of faith she and my great-grandfather left for their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. "A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children..." (Proverbs 13:22) We were blessed to have called them our own!
Before I close I have a few more "treasures" or old keepsakes to show...
|We found my Momma's long, lost "Nannette Lyla"...|
her beloved, childhood Cabbage Patch doll!
|A beautiful mirror from a great-uncle!|
|This book was copyrighted in 1922! Neat!|
That's it for now!
Until next time...remaining in Him!
