Mom's stash, tears of joy...
Found some wonder surprises while going through my mom's sewing stash. Looks like she was planning on making me a new purse with this above flower. I had asked her for a dark purse for fall. She passed away in July and I am just now going through her room full for stuff. This is only half of it! Her sewing machine, supplies and fabric stash is next to amazing! I am so excited because whenever I make something with any of these fabrics, I will think of her. I think she has enough stuff here for me to never stop making things or thinking of her. She had tins and jars of buttons, monopoly peices, remote control insides, fabric, lining, interfacing, batting, ribbon, tons of embellishments and much, much more. I couldn't help but tear up when going through this gold mine! Everytime I see her stuff I think about how advanced and talented she was for her time. She was 70 years when she passed and I can't help but think how lucky I am that she passed on this talent to me. My sister and brother had no desire for any of this stuff. Amy, my sister only asked for me to provide her a simple sewing kit with needle and thread and everything else she knows she just ask me and I would do it for her! I am BLESSED!!!!
Interesting needle work on top of fabric.
Thinking of possiblities for all of this!
She was maticulous at her storage and kept things prestine!
I had to fill suitcases and laundry baskets to haul this home. This is only the half of it! I still have another trip to make!
I am so glad I kissed her a lot!
She was always sewing, even in the hospital!
Love you mom!
