Today I was given a large bag of old linens.  They belong  to my friend
 Carol.     The bag was given to me by


family members who weren’t interested in it.  Carol had wanted me to have some pieces but now I have the whole bag.  Some of the linens were made by her mother and others by Carol.  They have been stored for

over 40 years so will need a soaking in fabreze.        There is an old green blanket in the bag , it is woven with a

fine thread and wool.  It’s a small blanket and I wonder if it was carol’s when she was a baby. 






I have two friends, Debbie and Susan whom I will consult with about cleaning them.  There are many stains, from years of being out of use.  I used a lot of my family’s cherished linens and dishes.  Why put things away when you can enjoy them



 I am hoping to make pillows and things like that out of some of them.  One piece is big enough for a baby blanket  so I may make that for my granddaughter Lillie who is to arrive sometime in October.  Each Piece will be a treasure for a member of my family.                                                                                                                                                                                                              


The garden is winding down, but I am still busy canning and freezing.  I bought some beets yesterday and plan to can pickled beets the end of the week.  I am still doing tomato sauce.

Hello fantastic blog! Does running a blog like this require a massive
amount work? I’ve absolutely no expertise in computer programming but
I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, should you have any ideas or tips for new
blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic nevertheless I just wanted to ask.
Thank you!

If you decide on doing a blog go with word press. Its easy to learn. The only problem that I have had is sometimes fining the time to do it daily. Good luck and let me know when you start blogging. Carole
