WIP Wednesday 01-31-2007

I am working on Valentine Post Cards. Some will go to Walter Reid Hospital for injured service men and women. Other will be gifts. I will be using the floss and beads I purchased last week on some of the cards. This one is made with commercial fabrics that I had in my stash and the bat is Peltex. I also have cut my bright hand dyes. Another stash buster project.
Over the weekend my husband got 4 boxes down from the attic. All four boxes are filled with photos and old papers from DHs family. Almost all of the photos are loose have no names or dates. DHs Grandma did make albums that have names and dates. These three photos have no names or dates. DHs grandma was a quilter and made a lot of hand stitched towels, table cloths, and pillow cases but this is not her.

Unlike my family who lost almost all their important papers and photos in a flood DH has papers and photos going back to the 1800s. What history I have is also limited because my
great-grandparents and grandparents left Russia and Poland with only the clothes on their backs.
I am working on my February 12 X 12 12 Journal Quilt for the Quilt Studio Challenge. January was titled "Family Tree" and February is DHs "Grand Parents Branch".
Have A Great Day! (email)

Those photos are treasures! I especially love the picture of his grandmother sewing by hand... it's beautiful! It could be an ad for the serenity derived from hand work. Your postcards are wonderful!

I love old photographs! I especially like to look at the body language in them. It is fun to wonder what they were thinking. the woman sewing looks beautiful.
We are lucky we have a lot of old photos, & we did get details of who is who. My husband was not interested in his family history, & sadly, we have no photos from his family.
