My gran has been having a bit of a sort out and some of her rubbish has ended up here. She thinks it quite funny that I was willing to take her old bedding of her hands. We were talking about embroidery the last time I saw her and mentioned that I use plain pillowcases and she said that she had some king size white cotton sheets at home that hadn't been used for about 25 years if I wanted them.
Of course I said I'd have them so she sent them to me along with more bedding, a tablecloth, a large piece of calico, some sacking with tools for making a rag rug and a wooden tapestry frame ( with some work still attached ).
These music sheets and books of my Grandad's also ended up with me.
While I'm not ready to set to my Grandad's old books with a pair of scissors just yet, I made new garland yesterday using music sheets bought from a charity shop. The garland is in the usual garland spot above the front door.
