Surprises in my Cedar Chest

It's been months since I have been able to open this chest because all winter long, I have had sewing projects piled on top of it.  After a sewing room cleaning last week, I was able to open it today. I was surprised to find some of the items on top!

Like my sewing machine manual. I was looking for this last month.

Dig a few inches down and I find a gazillion patterns for curtains, pillows and valances...

The next layer reveals this chicken denim block. I don't even remember making it!
I remember making other chicken blocks from this pattern, but not this one in denim.

Ah, there is that Christopher Lowe pattern for a round table! 
I really could have used it this winter when I brought my big round coffee table up from the basement.

On second thought,  I guess it's a good thing the pattern was hidden as I am planning to change the color scheme in the family room this year, so if I had made a table cover, it probably would no longer match.

 Sometimes things work out for the best.

I was looking for an apron pattern. I know I have purchased at least three apron patterns and never used them.  I am thinking the applique poodle pattern I showed a few posts ago would be cute on an apron.

I have only dug down about 4 inches and all of this was revealed. So who knows what I will find when I dig deeper--that apron pattern may be down there somewhere!

It's like finding hidden treasures. What fun!

I've been missing a dress pattern my youngest daughter bought two year ago...maybe you will find it somewhere in there ;-)!

Looks like you did a little spring cleaning and got some fun surprises to boot! :)

When I am done with my catch up from being gone all last week, I think I might open a chest too!
