    Last night I found a small bag with fabric from grandma. She passed in 1966! It is so dear to me to find this and why did I not remember I had it? I also have 12 quilt squares she made...paper pieced, with the paper still attached. The dates are from the early 60's. I also found an original fiesta ware teapot, bright green. The lid is cracked, but it looks very pretty. I am going to put it in my sewing room. I remember her making tea and taking it to the porch while she hand pieced her blocks. Maybe she will look over me while I sew.

    Bneighbor this brings up such good memories for me. We also drag raced for years, traveling lots of miles. Loved every minute of it. I'll bet your memory quilt will be outstanding.

    Sounds like you had a bunch of fun, and have some ideas for some neat projects!
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!

I enjoy both typs of racing, I am closer to drag racing since I do tires, parachute, and starting line for 2 cars and will stand in for other cars if a crew member is not there or the driver needs help.
    Last year I only pieced 4 lap quilts, 2 baby quilts. In past years I almost doubled that. Last year was tough, we were defending champion and had to work extra to keep that standing...we ended the year in secon place. Not bad, we are happy for the new champ...the bullseye is on his back this year!
    I think I will have more time to sew at the track this year.
    do you come to NJ? in my town there is a drag raceway...believe it or not, i've never been <g>.
