A Look Into My Hope Chest.......

Thursday, July 30, 2009

After hearing about Elissa's upcoming post about her hope chest, I thought it would be fun to post a few pictures about what's in mine! Courtney and I each have a hopechest from our great-grandmothers, so they are both very special family heirlooms!



Here's a display of most everything that is in my hope chest at this point. I'm not really intent on filling it up quickly for marriage; I just think it's fun to create beautiful items!! (Actually, I'm very bad and beginning a project and never finishing; most everything you see in this photo is NOT made by me!!) I have several doiles from a friend, a beautiful crocheted baby blanket from another friend (Thank you Kayla!!), a wedding ring quilt hand made by my great grandmother, several dishes either bought or passed down, and a white tablecloth. But I am working on a few things.......buried underneath is a quilt I've been working on for hmmmm...lets see.....3 years now? I'm also working on a crocheted baby blanket. So you could say I'm a bit slack in the "working diligently with her hands" department. (At least as far as my hopechest goes!!)
Here I am working on my baby blanket.

That's it for now - come back soon!!!

Great post! Thanks for sharing this. I don't have a chest yet, but my Dad and I plan to make it in time for my 16th birthday.

What a fun post Rachel! Sorry I haven't commented before now! I haven't followed your blog yet, and I always forget to check blogs - however lovely they are - if I don't follow them.
