gifts from my mama

In the spirit of storytelling with cloth, mending and patchwork and slow stitching, my mom recently brought me a box of things that she found in various drawers in numerous hutches and chests in her home.  Linens edged by hand, flour sack towels, embroidered bits of this and that, some needing mending and other pieces stained during times when she made strawberry rhubarb jam or some other sweet treat.

Tomorrow we leave for Fargo, North Dakota and NDSU for my son't college orientation. Well, he'll be orientating. We will be shopping! I've already mapped the thrift shops. Hopefully I will bring home some goodies. I need something to distract me from the fact that in a few short weeks my darling boy will be leaving my home for his own adventures.
