In the last couple of weeks I have slowly been stitching along my cute stitchery for the Stitch a-long. I'm don't think I am going to finish the whole bag by tomorrow. I really don't want to rush it and am feeling the pressure!
I've been doing a tiny bit of this cross-stitch too when the kids go to bed. I find it so relaxing.
My Dad turns 82 today and we are having dinner and cake here this evening. The kids are just beside themselves with excitement. However, I asked my mum the other day to give me some old photos of her family to start scanning into my computer (now that I have finally worked out how to do it properly).
The photos are coming up so well in my Creative Memories package. I never got to meet most of these people.
The photo's above are of my maternal grandfather who died when my mum was four, and my grandmother and great grandmother whom I never met. The sad thing is I don't have a name for these people when I talk about them to my mum. As I never knew them I always say 'your mum' or 'your dad'. Strange.
It is really interesting to see the family resemblances. We are lucky to have such old photos in good condition. The one on the left was taken in 1934.
Happy Stitching everyone,
