A Happy Ending

To make this sorta quilt related I have to go back to spring cleaning. I decided to move all of my boxed fabric into my huge garage and put it all on shelves.  In order to do that I had to clean out a section in the garage. 

We found lots and lots of treasures I didn't know were there, a leaf blower, mig welder, two chain saws, compressor,  numerous riding lawn mowers, walk behind mowers and lawn mowers in pieces. 

 This lawn mower was purchased at the end of the season (5 or 6 yrs ago) for a little more than pocket change as 'new in the box' . I got it home and something was missing. I always intended to take it back to the store, but it never happened. 

Needless to say, it was also used for piece parts.  A friend was helping clean up the garage and move boxed fabric out to the garage wanted the mower if I was done using it for parts.  Off it went to another friend along with many other small engine machines for an overhaul. 

She told me she was going wash and wax it after she used it. Here it is, all put back together washed and waxed and it runs like a top!  Enjoy it, Liz!

I'd be afraid to put my fabric in the garage. When Rob gets the urge to clean out the garage, I know my fabric would be considered trash. I need it where I can keep an eye on it.
