Chores won...but look what I found!
Saturday morning I posted on the "are you quilting this weekend" that I wasn't sure if chores or sewing would win the day...for once I'm pleased chores won.
I'll try to make a long story short. In the process of my DH cleaning out his sister's storage unit last winter, we were the lucky (growl) recipients of 9 army footlockers and 3 trunks in assorted conditions. We finally got to the basement yesterday and opened up these packages. Most of the contents were Vietnam army uniforms along with army gear etc from my FIL...but one held old family quilts and hand embroidered pillowcases. My husband isn't sure who did these, but we think they were made by his Aunt Evelyn...she was born about 1918ish is our estimate and lived in Cisna Park Illnois. Cisna Park is a cross-road between farm land and a stop sign...not much else.
Anyway, most are all hand work, my two favorite follow. (Sorry I've not done all photos in one post yet...)
