Going through boxes of 'stuff' ~ wheee!

I came across a box of quilt tops and blocks that I've made over the years. I'm not sure if they'll become finished quilts any time soon... it seems that I enjoy choosing the fabric, deciding on the pattern and doing the piecing. Adding the backing and doing the quilting don't really seem like fun in comparison. So I guess I'm sharing my unfinished projects. As you can tell, my life is super-exciting! lol... Well, I guess I'm just having fun going through these boxes and taking a walk down memory lane :) 

I was surprised to see that I'd left notes to myself pinned to this top. I'm so glad (and lucky) the pins didn't rust! I hope I can still decipher those notes.

Cute spool pattern :)

I really like the way black (and dots) make things pop!

I can't remember why I made this top. Aw, I forgot how cute this lamb is :) There's also a dog and a cat but they looked a little amoeba-like so didn't take a photo of them.
I don't like to iron unless it's absolutely necessary so the poor bunny has a wrinkly neck ( happens to the best of us ~ lol )
My photography assistant :)

I also found a box of old stuff like a little Ziggy doll dressed in a graduation gown and some old photos from proms and camp. There's me, probably about 1973-ish, I still can't resist playing in the flowers!
Love these little painted rock shoes. They were always on my dresser in my childhood bedroom. I still like this mix... girly tomboy! That's me :)

I think we're about the same age- I was born in 68!! Your quilt tops are absolutely gorgeous- love those roses. Your comment about the wrinkly neck made me smile a big smile :) Have a wonderful day, and thanks for sharing your goodies!
