My Dads moms

Grandma Martha (my dads birth mom) ,

Was an incredible seamstress. She could look at a dress & recreate it with out a pattern. There’s a letter that my Aunt Ruby has that Grandma Martha wrote to her mom saying “ there was a sale on fabric at the dry goods store so I brought some home with me”. That cracks me up. Now I now that my fabric addiction is hereditary. 😊 She passed away when my dad was 7.  

Grandpa married Grandma Margaret  a few years later& they were married for over 50 years.  This past February I was out in Idaho visiting family & Grandna Margaret asked me if I would like to have Grandma Martha’s sewing machine. I was gobsmacked. ABSOLUTELY I would want it!!! I was amazed, proud & thankful that she had kept it all of these years & that she gave it to me. Now how was I going to get it home?  Problem easily solved. My parents went out to Idaho for my nephews graduation & they brought it back for me. I took her to get a spa treatment & now she just purrs!

I just finished putting a piano key border on a quilt with this machine. Every time I use this sewing machine I will think of both of my Grandmas!
Me & Grandma Margaret. 

I hope y’all have a great day! More later on,
