The photo below is of my precious grandson who passed away on his 6th birthday wrapped in the 1st quilt I made.
    oh my .. how very sad.. how wonderful you have this picture.

    I've always taken pictures of the projects that I've done but only recently began putting them into an album. It's not exactly a quilting journal since I've had to try almost everything out there so it includes garment sewing, chicken-scratch, crewel embroidery, counted cross-stitch, basket weaving and only in the last few years predominantly quilts. I love it though. I call it my creative accomplishment album. Y'know how you have those days when you feel like you haven't really accomplished anything? More "un-sewing" than quilting? Having this to look back at helps those days.

    I have a journal. It's a good way to keep track of what you created and who you gave it to. I just need to print out the pics I took and tape them in the book. A scrape book is a great idea.
