I don't have a lot of time but had a few quick things to share with you.
A friend managed to snap a couple of photos of the gigantic yo-yo quilt I found at my dad's house.
I thought you might like to see them too.
Most of the yo-yo's were in good shape. Looks like a few need to be repaired.
Interestingly the pink yo-yo's appear to be made from 2 different pink fabrics.
We had a textile expert at the meeting and she was able to date some of the fabrics in the quilt.
There were some from the 20"s, 30's, 40's and maybe the 50's.
I am pretty sure my mother's mother made this one.
Even if you are not a fan of yo-yo's you have to appreciate all the work that went into this quilt.
We did a mug rug swap at out AAMQG meeting and this little beauty came home with me!
Made by another Pam.
I just love the aqua and the orange together!
Thanks to Stephanie for making one for me so I could participate too!
You're the BEST, Steph!
JIC you might be wondering about my dad and the man that ripped off his car.
I found a link to an article about him.
He pleaded guilty to 2 different felonies and may be spending life in jail.
This is not the first time he has ripped people off.
If you are interested, here is the article.
If you learn anything from this, please dear friends, remind the elderly in your life not to talk to people that knock on their doors!
I found out from the police, these scam artists love to go into older neighborhoods and
look for signs that an elderly/disabled person lives there (like a ramp to the house).
Never give them money and never believe their stories no matter how friendly they appear!
OK off my soap box now!
We have my dad's car back.
We had to pay for a new title, registration and license plate though.
So even though he didn't commit a crime we still had to pay the money to fix it.
Have a wonderful day!
