My weeks plan was completely changed from what I had thought it would be!! We received a call from Hubby’s mama that aunt Grace had quickly passed away. They think that she had ALS, she had been in a wheelchair for two years because of her back which gave her a lot of pain. The disease slowly work is way up to her lungs and she died from carbon dioxide as she could breathe in but not out.
So… A funeral was quickly a part of my weeks plans. The part that I wasn’t looking forward to was the part that it was in Ohio… A 13 hr drive….. We were also very limited to how long we could be gone for my girl wasn’t feeling good ( not a good week for her either) . We couldn’t leave until Thursday night until middle daughter came to care for Leona..we left at 7:30 ..arrived out in Ohio in time to wipe the tired wrinkles from the eyes and fresh clothes for the Funeral at 10:00 Friday morning.
Now hubby has many cousins in that area, so after the funeral, it became party time ! Even uncle Henry enjoyed the action all around him,and joined in. We finally saw a bed at 12:30 am Saturday. Slept until 7:30 then on the go again to have breakfast with cousins. One of the cousins and I decided to check out some yard sales that looked like fun. And they were fun! 😄 find a small portable ironing board to go beside my sewing machine! 👏👏 Left for home around noon and arrived before 1:00am Sunday morning. Oh… Let me tell you that my bed felt wonderful!!
When traveling there were was wonderful moments that were breath taking! First one…
Then the cousin that I went to the yard sales with shared her quilts that she had….
This one was from her great grandma… Don’t you love those little blocks!! Date of quilt 1920’s
Quilt 2 .. This one was from a elderly lady that she worked for..
I didn’t get a picture of the whole quilt… Limited time 🙁…. It was mostly feedsack fabric and in excellent shape!! Also like how she put little stripes between the four patch blocks. Date of quilt .. Probably 1930’s
Have a great week ! Deb
