Treasures Lost... Treasures Found

I just couldn't resist passing on these insanely cool true stories...

The only treasure I have stumbled across pales in comparison to those stories but it brought me lots of joy.

I stopped at a garage sale a few blocks from my house. A woman was selling her mother's possessions and under a table was a garbage bag full of fabric scraps. I bought the bag and a few other sewing things for 5 bucks and went on home.
Dumping the bag on the living room floor I found it contained a few 1970's polyester but mainly was lovely, pristine cottons and feedsaks from the 1930's and 1940's. I was in heaven and still enjoy the quilts I made from that fabric still.

No millions but almost as good!

I thought this quite interesting... I teach students how to do this with watercolors, but have never had much success with crayons.  ...
