    There was someone on the thread that was looking for the Musical Instrument book. It's a small world. I imagine it felt a little like Christmas/birthday rolled into one.

    I bet it feels like they are all brand new too. Sit back and have a nice look-see.

I have already pulled several out for consideration, but haven't even had a chance to look through the entire container. I haven't seen these patterns in close to five years when I lived up in Washington. The container was buried under a bunch of boxes that we still haven't gone through (and we've lived here for over four years.) I know I am going to find duplicate books and patterns. I am sure I know where to go to pass them on when I do, though. :lol: I already have a few that I've set aside to pass on to other quilters.
    I have the folded star book you have in last photo

    We moved in such a hurry last spring that I didn't have time to lable things...but most of my sewing stuff is in clear plastic tubs. When I DO go looking for something, I also find items I'd forgotten about! Time for me to get going on more projects!
