Aunt Irese's basement
Luckily, I didn't know anything about their stories when judged because the one below would have won my heart.
Aunt Irese was a collector. She went to auctions and bought boxes of textile items. Kay said her basement was full of all sorts of treasures. Kay got the battenburg lace, she said there were boxes of it. And there was an original receipt for everything there too.
What I would have liked to have seen most was what Aunt Irese did with quilts. She stitched strips of fabric to the edges and staped the quilts to her basement ceiling! The ceiling was covered with quilts! What a lovely vision that is.
