"Inherited" Stash (kind of)

Inherited Stash

   This week something unexpected and sad happened. My great grandmother died almost certainly because of natural reasons, I don't know for sure, no one told me, but she was 90 years old.

   It was not her stash which I inherited, but it was because of her funeral that I visited my ex step grandmother (is that a valid relationship?) who has always sewn, a lot. My step sister, who lives in her house, told her a few times that I was learning to sew and making many things. I went there to wait for my step sister to get ready for the funeral. While I was waiting, her grandmother started to browse her stash for unwanted stuff, things she is not going to use because she is not sewing as much as she used to. She gave me a bag full of notions. There is a LOT of lace, fabric, ribbons, zippers and velcro. Now I'm searching for crafts to make with scraps of lace. Do you have any ideas?
