treasure trove

My parents’ house is crammed full of … stuff. There’s stuff everywhere. The upside of this is once in a while I will find a little gem:

A mushroom forest stitchery kit! My mother thinks she bought it, or maybe it was my grandmother (my grandmother died around 1978). What’s funny is a few years ago I would have thought this was the most hideous thing ever, yet today I find it charming. Just goes to show you should never throw anything away. Bahahahahaha.

    Oh how cute! AND from circa 1978. Now that’s an appropriately aged stash.

    my house is full of stuff too – i always end up needing something right after i’ve thrown it out, so i hesitate to throw anything out….maybe one day my kids will find some treasure or two and thank me….

    My mom’s house is the same way. Visiting the folks is like going treasure hunting! 🙂

    Haha, can’t wait to see you make them. mushroom forest! who would have thought of it.
    I want to ask you about local yarn stores you like. We visited this weekend and happened to find this awesome store called Yarn Garden and was wondering if it’s somewhere you like too.

    Oh Mariko, its not that you suddenly find it charming, its that you are becoming your mother, or your grandmother, as the case may be! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Don’t worry, I’m suddenly having cravings to crochet a blanket even though I have a closet full of “grandmotherly” made afghans!!! Ugh….

    Dude, that pillow is so cute! I would love to stitch away on that. My grandma is kind of like that too. She’s always dragging out these boxes of cute hand-made projects she’s stitched over the years. It’s all very retro and cool now, like your mushroom pillow!

    That is a cute kit! And I like how it follows the post “There’s a Fungus Among Us”! I’m easily amused.
