Thanks to the cold, drippy, dreary weather today I woke with another sinus headache. So I decided to do a post while the medication I took a while ago kicks in. It's too cold and wet to dig in the gardens today.
Just one of those days when I feel like digging through some old fabrics I have packed away. When I found this unfinished quilt it got me to thinking about Unfinished Projects. Better known to quilters, rug hookers and crafters as UFO's! Yes, the darn things! We all have them! The thing that has my mind all in a tizzie today ( besides the headache) is the thought that this phenomenon has been passed to us from generations before.
I have proof! These lovely old unfinished squares from an applique butterfly quilt were started by my GREAT Grandmother Minnie Eggen. My Mom's Grandma! She died when I was nine years old. She lived near us and we visited her quite often. She was a quilter, crocheted, tatted, embroidered and knitted. She had flowers growing around her house and was known to love the Angel Plant.
Her hands were always holding a needle work project except for when she stopped to put a lunch on the table when we visited. I remember the lemon jelly roll with the dusting of powdered sugar.
