Has it really been almost a month since I last posted? I don't think I have ever gone that long without posting something since I started this blog, and I hope I won't let that happen again. I offer no big excuse . . . I've just been focusing some energy on purging in my craft room and moving some things around. I still have TONS of stuff that needs to find a new home, so if you're looking for, wanting, or can use anything in particular, let me know because I'd sure love to make a deal with you.
I have a real treasure to show you today. This past Sunday, my mother, sister, and I visited cousin Mildred (my second cousin, actually), and she asked if I'd like to have this photo:
Say what?!?! I'm sure she noticed my excitement because I love (and I mean l-o-v-e) old photos whether or not I know the people in them. I found this picture even more endearing when I learned that my eyes were "meeting" my great-great-grandparents for the first time. Let me say that another way . . . I now know what my grandmother's (favorite) grandparents looked like! The fact that this jewel was already framed and in great condition is a bonus!
Of course, I will be making a special thank you card for Mildred, but I decided to also whip up this 5" x 6" wooly hearts tag (my own design) that she can hang in her sewing/quilting room.
During our visit, we thoroughly enjoyed seeing many of Mildred's quilts--not just the ones that she has made, but some that are antique treasures made by her mother, mother-in-law, and other special loved ones.
I hope to have a stamped project to share soon--it might just be my thank you card to Mildred. :-)
