    Cleaning out and finding odd things.

    Now this may not seem odd to you but I haven't seen things like this since kindergarten. Seed pictures for real??? And my question to myself is Where did I get all this STUFF??? I am finding old pieced blocks (ok that one I can kinda understand) Bunches and bunches of iron on transfers, Blocks that have been partially painted, old patterns , old magazines. oy vey. If I close my eyes will it go away if I wish real hard. lol

    Close your eyes and it will go away??!?!?!? Send it my way if you don't want it anymore! I think it's awesome! Maybe you inherited someone's stash and didn't realize it?

    I know that a neighbor gave me some things she found in a yard sale machine cabinet. I guess this stuff is it.
    I never really went through it. If I had my own house it would be different I may take some of this old stuff and frame it for fun. But I have 2 rooms so I need to weed out a lot of things I brought with me. I am finding old cardboard patterns, old quilt group news letter, 1974, bits and pieces and even a pieced blocks section made from double knits. . What do I do with this stuff? There is even a drawing , very stylized of the court house in Fairburn Ga I guess they were going to make a quilt? I need to go through and organize this . I really want to get on with quilting but I guess I need to sort and get things to where they will be appreciated.
