I consider myself to be a pretty lucky lady. I've won my fair share of prizes over the years. I've been lucky in love and have wonderful kids. I would have to say almost all that I've hoped for and dreamed for in life has worked out for me...so far.
I wanted to share something I constantly remind myself that I am lucky to have.
You're Jealous right? This old trailer and all it's boxes make me happy.
In all these boxes are Roxy's stash of fabric. Roxy's was a friend of my grandma's. She lived with her for several years after my grandpa died. Roxy was a fabric hoarded. Not only was an entire trailer full of boxes but there were more in the granary.
Roxy died a year or so ago and my grandma asked my sister and I if we wanted to go through the fabric before she donated it to the church.
Last spring we spent a few hours one night transporting the boxes into the house and sorted through it.
We found lots of treasures and lots of polyester.
She had almost every kind of fabric you can imagine.
plaids, felt, velvet, wool, corduroy, canvas, levi, wool, flannel, silks, vintage cotton prints, burlap, etc.
The boxes were disgusting but she had everything tightly wrapped in plastic bags so the fabric was in good condition.
I need to take some pictures of my loot, but I haven't taken the time yet. Here are few pieces I took pictures of that night.
Every time I finish a project made with Roxy fabric I say to myself "Thank you Roxy!"
All of these are projects made almost entirely of Roxy fabric.
My urge is to hoard the fabric especially the pieces I love, then I think of Roxy who never got to use the fabric she cherished. I'm lucky to have the fabric and I should use it.
I hope you all are feeling Lucky today too.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
