I have had this notebook sitting on the shelf with lots of papers stuffed in it. Yesterday I got some tabs and got lots of things put in the notebook! Yea!!! I'm sure I will find more things I want to save in it, but at least now it has categories to put them in.
I also got some of my scraps organized (just some scraps - there are lots more). This basket is for 1 1/2" strips of 30's fabric and reproduction fabric. I will be making 4-patches. The 30's will be paired with white fabric and the reproductions will be paired with tan or beige or another color.
Another find from my trip is the little bank book belonging to my maternal grandfather. I have it displayed on my desk.
It's from the 50's. My grandpa was a carpenter and after he and my dad and uncles built our house (in 1948), he built another house for him & grandma. He didn't live very long after that, only until 1951.
I have been wanting to make this quilt for a long time.
