Your pillows are just stunning! I can't imagine how hard it must be to go through your family's things. It must have brought back many memories!

Those pillows are amazing! Your mom was a good teacher. My mom tried to show me, I simple can't grasp all the measuring parts of sewing.

I can't wait to see what the hidden treasure was!


What a sweet post! And yes that is so hard to part with our childhood things. I LOVE the little spoon holder..We all learned from our moms and yard sales were a way of life back then, and thank goodness they still are today!


My mom has been in assisted living for the past three years also. My dad passed away a few years prior and her house has been sitting vacant all this time. I'm impressed you've sold your mom's house. My mother still talks about coming home to her things. I can't bring myself to move forward, so it sits. In January a pipe burst and flooded everything. "Just" the floors were ruined. My mom has so many things. I surely give you credit. I don't know how you did it, but that is the road I must take also. This post and your previous one for Mother's Day were killers, Robin!!!


Robin, did you make all of those pillows...they are stunning!!! i love all of those ruffles...yes, just gorgeous!!!


My mom passed in 1993 and I am still going through her things... After my dad had me take most of her clothes and other stuff to a charity shortly after she passed... There are still things around the house that he (and I) is just now parting with. There are things that I gave away in the beginning that I wish I had kept... But I still have my memories of her and that is what counts.
