    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.

    Yes it would but I at this point in my life don't see me doing it. And unless I get off this computer and get busy sorting I won't be doing much of anything lol

    Whatever you do, don't throw it away .... so much potential there. Selling or trading on this board is a great idea but if that does not appeal to you, give it to a local quilting guild. You have treasures there!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    What you don't dispose of on the board you can give to the local senior center. I have taken many things to them and they act as if it is Christmas day, they are just so thrilled to have some of the things we no longer want or need especially any thing related to needle work.
    Happy Quilting

    The same thing happened to me before I moved. While going through boxes of un-remembered items found enough bear claw blocks to make a quilt. Lots of applique patterns of just about every imagineable. Some items I just wondered why in the world would I saved that. Laughing, laughing.
