One afternoon, Mom was throwing things away. Do you see the star on the blue scrap of fabric in the photo? Mom snatched it up and said, ‘trash!’ That was all she got rid of on this particular day. Oh, she had me add two more old patterns to boxes stashed in her car. I’m not sure what she is going to do with them, but she has them tidily boxed. Yesterday, she mentioned getting rid of some books. I would have been thrilled by this announcement. However, I had JUST moved those books to fill up boxes of books so the box would stack properly. I had asked her about them and she told me she was going to read them. She told me to keep them where she could get to them. They are in a marked box…under boxes of fabric she moved after I had arranged them.
Tales of words and cloth. A never ending story.
