Thank you to all of those lovely people who gave me suggestions about how to fix my blog and get my blog list back, and to those other lovely people who said they have “no idea”, I’ll say thanks for being honest. I have tried all suggestions and restored the system but have not had any luck so far. I have perused the “help” section of blogger for suggestions but am now waiting for a reply to a question I sent them. Fingers crossed.
In the meantime it’s been a busy time in the household. Bill and his sisters have been busy cleaning out his Mum’s house and that has bought back memories for them all. MIL was a hoarder having lived through times where you kept EVERYTHING because you just never know when you may need it again. Also when her two sisters when into rest homes she stored all of their furniture that had been Grandma’s and Great Grandma’s cause of course it was always passed on throughout the families and she hadn’t wanted to get rid of anything whilst they had been alive. Needless to say MIL never got rid of anything. Well it’s going now!
Bill bought home the things that I had made for his Mum.
I cross stitched this for Mother’s Day 1994…….
this one in 1999 for her 70th birthday……
and I made her this quilt in 2009 for her 80th.
I was so thrilled with this quilt. When Bill bought it home he said it was folded on top of the blanket box in her bedroom. She was so pleased when she was given it she told them she didn’t want to dirty it or get anything on it (she suffered from psoriasis very badly over her whole body) so she had folded it to look at. When we gave it to her I told her it could all be washed easily and that it was made for her to use, but obviously she couldn’t do it, how sweet is that!
Anyway these are now here at home, the cross stitches hanging in our hallway with the ones I did for my Mum and the quilt will eventually end up on the end of one of the beds.
I was also extremely lucky to be given MIL’s over locker. My babylok had died and Bill’s sisters both have one so I was the recipient of hers. Yah!! (I am a bit OTT regarding neatened seams).
Hugs in stitching, Deb x
