Old & New Photos

We've been sorting through lots of old photos lately. This photo shows John's Mum and Dad (on the left) at the wedding of their cousin in the early 1960's. The others in the photo are John's father's brothers and their wives - love the hats.

John on his First Communion Day (about 1957) - such a cutie.

Very rarely there's a photo of me that I don't hate. This was taken last April (not bad for a phone photo).


I've started piecing the red/cream/white "Sweet Pea's Quilt" and it's looking pretty good - will take a photo when all the blocks are made. My camera no longer works and I haven't been able to find anyone willing to repair it. The girls have told me not to buy a new one, so I'll have to use John's camera.

Lunchtime stitching (hasn't been much over the last month or so) is still Girls Day Out - the flower shop but it will be put aside soon so I can stitch Sweet Pea. Have a look at Teresa's blog - her Girls Day Out blocks are beautiful.

It is great fun to look back at old photos, I got married in 1963 so I can relate to these photos.

Hats were quite the thing weren't they!! I love looking at old photos...(mostly!)..I have a "night time" stitchery that I work on at night when I am watching TV...it is slowly getting there.....!
