Happy Father's Day!


I just came from visiting my parents. I gave my dad the gifts from me and my family. We visited for awhile and started to look through some old photo albums.


This is me and my parents before my brother was born. My mother was pregnant at the time. I must have been 4 years old,


Here's a picture of my dad holding my brother. This must have been in 1962 which is the year my brother was born.

The old photographs made me nostalgic. I don't think I'd be a quilter if it wasn't for my dad. He was a tailor. As a little girl, I remember falling asleep to the sound of his sewing machine. My dad had the sewing machine in my room. I was always fascinated by it. I wasn't supposed to touch it but I did end up getting the needle stuck in my finger once. Oops!

My dad doesn't sew anymore. I feel as though I'm carrying on for him! It doesn't seem possible that so many years have gone by. I hope my own kids have nice memories of me as I do of my own parents.

  1. How very cute! I was looking through old photos today, too. It's bittersweet to see photos of our parents looking so young.
