Beautiful things............

This gorgeous "fan" quilt was one of the things being raffled off at our Relay for Life recently. I bought several chances on it, but didn't get it!
It was a labor of love for the lady who made it by hand, and then so generously donated it for the cause!
......and check out these wonderful bits and pieces of old lace and dainty old embroidery scissors and a collar, buttons and a pair of pale pink girls' socks/hosiery that someone had lovingly crocheted an edging of lace at the tops and run pink silk ribbon through the pattern! A dear friend of mine generously gave these things to me when cleaning out the old "home place".........knowing that I treasure these kinds of goodies, and I will very likely use them to embellish an art wall quilt or pillows or purses! I think the dark-aged oblong piece of lace/crochet will make a gorgeous wide band bracelet, with old ivory pearls and beads added, don't you?!!!
