the grandmother load




During my parents recent visit, my mother gifted me with 2 bins full of vintage fabric that belonged to her mother Reta. According to my Dad it has been carted from house to house for almost 40 years! I am in fabric heaven and can't wait to start a few projects. Sadly, I never knew my grandmother Reta, but judging by her amazing taste in fabric, we would have been fast friends. I love you Mom.
