Hello dear friends yes I'm still around just don't count me out yet!-smile~ I have had a few problems with my browser, and still don't have it worked out yet!
We lived with my grandmother on her farm while my dad was stationed at the nearby army base, and while he was on military tour in Korea.
When I was young, I loved this wardrobe, and thought it was so huge, after acquiring it, it now seems so small! Grandmother kept all her quilts stacked inside, she had many, all hand made by her, and her friends when she would have her quilting bees! I had the privilege to participate in several of her gatherings as a young bride! Oh how I would love to have those quilts now. I remember one particular design, it was the little "Sue Bonnet Girls"!
However I did receive two of them! They are now a little worn, and one is a little tattered! The cotton in between is so heavy, not like the ones quilted today!
Because her farmhouse was not centrally heated, in the late fall she would take the quilts out and place them on the beds and that is where they would stay all winter, they were stacked high and so heavy that once you were in bed you stayed in that position, but oh how warm we children were! Come spring she would air dry them in the sun, and back to the wardrobe they went!
and a few cotton feed sacks that belonged to her.Years ago feed came in lovely colorful feed sacks, to which she would wash, and save for quilts,
