Something Vintage

I have been meaning to do a post about this for quite a while now.  Since I don’t yet have my latest thread project completed, I figured this might be a good time to post about my vintage piece.  My mom passed away in February, and then my mother-in-law in April. On the way home from my mother-in-law’s funeral I stopped off at my mom’s house.  I remembered a piece that a neighbor lady tatted and gave to my mom many decades ago.  Probably about 40 years ago.  I so wanted to find it and bring it home.  I feared that it had been tossed out, but I persevered.  Looked through lots and lots of drawers.  And wouldn’t you know it, this treasure was in the last drawer that I looked in!!  I brought it home and hand-washed it and then took pictures of it.  It now hangs in my kitchen.  I love it!  And I am so glad I looked through *all* of those drawers and didn’t give up.

My Red & Pink Granny Thing

Hello all!  Hope you have had a lovely week, and are enjoying your weekend! My husband and I will be watching the three little ones tomorrow night while their parents go to see Randy Houser at the County Fair. 

This post I am sharing with you my “red thing”.  I started out to use up some partial balls of #10 thread.  I was going to just keep going around and around, and make it into a rainbow sort of thing.  I quickly decided that I was losing patience with that idea, so just kept it to shades of reds and pinks.  I really don’t know exactly what it is that I made…other than a granny square.  I’m thinking it can be used for a doll blanket, a table scarf, or…any suggestions?!

I am working on another thread project, and will be sharing once I am finished.  It’s been in the works for a few wks. now, and is taking some time. But it is a thread stash buster for sure! :D

Anyhoo, without further ado…I present to you my “thing”.  As always, I thank you for checking out my blog!
