One of my cousins came to visit from New York City!! She and her hubby had never been to Oregon before and were on their way to a conference in Newport. We were able to spend most of one day together. Of course, I had to clean house first !! But, we were so busy talking she probably wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't cleaned. They came over for dinner and besides myself and DH, our son & grandson were here. We didn't stop talking until they had to leave.
Sometime, in the past, she bought these blocks at a sale in New Hampshire (probably 40 years ago) and she never got around to sewing them together (nothing new there, right?). I thought some of you might have a guess as to when these fabrics were made. I'm thinking 30s. There are 49 of the X blocks.
There are 12 9-patch blocks and a lot of them have pieced sections like this one.
Then there are these appliquéd panels, but they are not finished either. They are appliquéd on a printed panel and there are stains as well. Maybe I can cut out the good sections and make something out of them.
This one has pieces pinned to where they go - and I'm sure they have been pinned for at least 40 years! I don't know what I will do with these. She said I can do whatever I want to do.
During the summer I started these socks for my 2 younger grandsons (ages 8 and 11). I just finished them and sent them with their Halloween cards.
I have been very busy sewing for Christmas craft shows, so I haven't done much blogging. Thanks for visiting!
