My Dad and my Son! Date right on the photo!!

 My Dad and my Son John.  August 15, 2007.  That is my kitchen in the background, I thought this was from Christmas 2008. Wrong! Until recently I had not checked out the photos left on my Dad's  camera, just a few photos on it but fun to look back.

Found my Dad's old Camera…...

The top photo is my Uncle Roy,  the bottom is his wife my Aunt Mert,   Aunt Mert is my Dad's sister.  My Uncle Roy passed away,  Aunt Mert is now living in Lander near my Cousin Margaret keeping her in check.   They are in my Dad's home.  Very sad times.  I do believe my Uncle Roy was feeling awful at this time, later diagnosed with cancer.

Meet Emily

In about a year this beautiful person will be my daughter-in-law.  We are hugging here because we caught the biggest halibut  on our Alaska fishing trip when we visited  John and Emily in 2014.
I say she will be our daughter-in-law but she already feels like a family member,  I think my son's have chosen the most awesome women to share their lives as well as ours with.  Life is Sweet!!

Have you seen this one?

My goal a few years back was to finish some of the quilts and fiber art I started and abandoned.  This is one of those.  
It has appliqué, thread painting and I think beautiful quilting on it.  If I have put this on my blog, you get it again.  I have new quilts, they are waiting to be juried into shows and I will not be able to share those for probably several years.  Time to get some art done just for the blog. Maybe some more of these abandoned UFO's.  That would be a wonderful goal to  try again.  I did get lots of unfinished projects done when that was a goal and it gave me a great sense of accomplishment.
