Lace, Lace and....

More lace...over the weekend I was gifted with lots of lace, muslin, cotton fabric, sewing notions and other items...my sil's grandmother who is 93 is moving to California to live with her last surviving son...she has been a sewer, quilter all her adult life...she still quilts, but not like she has in the past...I was gifted with some of her treasures and will be using these in some of my projects...some of the lace is old, some vintage and some (not much) is newer...here is the bounty of my haul...there is 20yds of this soft pink rose fabric with lace added to the bottom....
 this crocheted piece is about 20 inches in width and is about 8ft long...so very pretty...
 there is twenty two yds of this one....a very soft cream color...
 30 yds of soft muslin...just out of the wash and still needs to be ironed...
 loving this stack of lacy goodness....
 all this lace is yardage...so very pretty and old...
 a wee crocheted heart to hang.....
 this pic is turned wrong...don't know what is wrong with blogger... ugh...the blue gathered fabric has 22yds...she gathered this herself for making curtains....
I am so happy with my good fortune of being able to take these treasures and add them to my own...knowing a bit about the lovely lady whom they come from is just icing on the cake...there was more fabric for sane quilting as well...there were two rolls of this yellow dots...each roll has around 300yds of fabric and it is 8 tp 10 inches wide...I plan to use some of these for hexies....it is a lovely lemon yellow that I just love....
Until next time,
Wendy
