As done as it is going to get
So, this is as good as the attic is going to get. At least now you can walk from one end to the other. There is probably still stuff that needs to go but we made a lot of progress! Now we can at least move around enough to work on replacing the floor with plywood!
A lot of it was just plain trash. Stuff we should have thrown away a long time ago. Those crates on the left are full of Christmas decor. I did not go through those as I didn't think there was much in there that would have made it to the garage sale pile anyway and I'll just go through those when it is time to decorate for Christmas. I'm not sure how many boxes there are all together - next time I'm up there I'll take a pic of just the Christmas stuff.
I did find things I forgot I had, things I knew I had but didn't know where they were and things I knew I had and had no idea they were stored in the attic - or why. Here are a couple of things that were up there that should have been down here in the cedar chest. (they have been washed and that is where they are now!)
These baby pillowcases were mine. Mother does not remember who made them but I'm almost positive they were embroidered by the same person. I'm pretty sure they were made either by my grandmother or great-grandmother.
This is a crib-size bedspread. It was hubby's when he was a baby and it was used for my boys when they went from the crib to the toddler bed.
Yesterday I worked on my quilt top some then stitched - or rather unstitched - last night. Progress pictures to come later. I still have a few 'attic treasures' to share.
Hope you have a great Monday!
