I have always loved that song.
These were given to me by a friend in Texas, she knew I was collecting wheat dishes and well...she saw them on ebay ..... end of story. Lucky me...I love them.
I taught her father and mother to quilt, if you have been reading my blog for a while, you will have heard me mention that I taught an older couple to quilt, this is them. They made me this quilt. That is where the memories come in...I can barely stand to see this quilt without crying because he is suffering from alheizmers. They were the first friends that Vance and I ever had as a young married couple. Even tho they were old enough to be our parents we enjoyed their company, dominos, and cards.
They have treated our sons as their own grandchildren. So this quilt will hold alot of sweet memories for me and for my children for they made them each a quilt as well. I will show my husbands another time.
I taught them when they were in their middle seventies and she has said to me on numereous occasions that she wished I had taught her sooner.
They got me hooked on garage sales....and he taught me to dicker with the prices and if I was a coward, he would do it for me. In the post coming up, I will show you all the dishes that I collected with him and his wife. You may tire of me and my dishes but I did get rid of alot before moving to Samoa....lukcy you!
