On this day, I think with love of two very important people in my life - my dad and my husband. Enjoy those special fellows in your life and all have a great day. (Click to enlarge)
If you would like to see more of the old pictures, go to labels and click on antique pictures.

Here is a tablerunner that I found the how-to on the internet (so much great stuff out there!) and it said it was quick. It is. I just quickly picked out some fabric and put it together. It looks really nice on the chest in my dining area. (Click to enlarge)

You should also take the award and place it on your blog if you decide to accept it.
http://justtickety-boo.blogspot.com/ This is Jewels - a friend and fellow quilter right here in our town. She is one of the Artist Trading Card swappers and she loves collages, thrifting, tea cups, their cottage in Canada - she has a darling blog and is taking really beautiful pictures. Be sure to check out her blog.
http://journeyofaquilter.blogspot.com/ Here is Karen's blog - we have been commenting back and forth now for a long time. Karen does absolutely beautiful work. She also is a gardener and posts photos of her beautiful plants. Be sure to visit her blog and see the beautiful things she has in the works - one of them is making kloesjes (hope I got that right) and she also is hosting a One Flower Wednesday.
http://tatteredandlostphotographs.blogspot.com/ and a http://tatteredandlostephemera.blogspot.com/ are so much fun. The first, of course, is full of old photograph the blogger finds in many different places, and the other is lots of fun old ads, all kinds of old papers. She writes in a funny quirky manner and it's imaginative and entertaining.http://ahugdelights.blogspot.com/ Janet's blog about her life on their ranch in South Dakota. Fairly new, she is delightful and it's fun to learn of the work on the ranch lately during calving season - certainly different from most of us. I enjoy reading her blog a lot.
http://www.forgottenbookmarks.com/ This is a fun blog that shows what is found in old books. Charming.
http://widgetlucy.blogspot.com/ This is a refreshing blog written by the young mom of four children in either Australia or New Zealand. She is witty, cute and the kids are adorable. Takes great pictures. Fun to follow.
http://barbarabrackman.blogspot.com/ Barbara is a quilt historian from Kansas and writes a very informative and interesting blog. A good read and lots of pictures of lovely old quilts - and new ones, too.
Now I am supposed to tell seven interesting things about myself - good grief, what can they be?
I am so glad I got to live long enough to be able to get in on the computer age. I love the internet and fiddling on the computer.
I have reached a stage in my life when I just don't sweat the small stuff anymore. Dust is clean dirt and the house doesn't look that much different after you clean it. And I did also learn that the kids and my husband weren't the only ones that mess things up!
Two years ago, I went to see Sex and the City twice - first with my youngest granddaughter (she was 18) and two of her friends and the second time with a neighbor my age. We went to a matinee and were the only ones in the theater!
Quilting has been a joy of mine for probably 35 years. I have a 22 year old Bernina that I just love. I tell my kids quilting keeps me out of their hair!
I drive a 1998 Prism and it has maybe 33,000 miles on it. I'm a regular runaround! If I go someplace, I fly.
I am in my 17th home since Ray and I married. I've lived in my little condo here for 12 years this summer and that is the longest I've lived anyplace over what would have been 61years of marriage. He worked for the Santa Fe and transferred a lot.
I consider myself so blessed to have had good health and a wonderful supportive family over all these years.
