    We had a family quilt at our last reunion and when my sister lost the bid, she cried. I told her not to worry. We would make one. I made it and gave it to her yesterday. She was sure surprised.

    Thanks for all of your nice comments. I love my sister and boy is she spoilt. She's the baby of the family. She is a professional fisherman. She doesn't sew but has her own business and works full time at another job inbetween fishing trips. I live the life of Reilly. I get to stay home and quilt quilt quilt.

    Barbm, You brought a smile to my face. You would probably fit in my fun loving family just fine.

    I had bought some white blocks at a yard sale that was just a little thicker than normal. I put them back and saved them for just the right project. They fit right into my printer. So I scanned the pictures and printed them out. They were all wonderful old photo's of when my daddy and his brothers and sisters were all young. There was only one recent photo that was in color. The rest were in black and white. Then I had a family picture of them altogether with a little story of where each one of the kids were born as my grandparents moved a couple of times. It was real interesting because it told how my grandpa rented a boxcar to carry their possessions on one trip and on another how they all traveled in wagons. It was pretty neat. I told my sister that she should treat the photo's with some bubble jet spray just in case. But I think the ink will be colorfast. I think it is going to hang instead of be on a bed so washing will be minimum. Thanks for the interst. This was a neat project and I recommend it for nastalgia's sake.

    Well, Shemjo, my sister fishes all over the United States. She has even been to New York to fish in tournaments there. She was Bass-N- Gal Angler of the year two years in a row and now fishes in the Women's BASS Tours. Her husband is pro also so between the two of them they cross paths sometimes. She has won about 4 fully rigged bass boats. Me? I perfer pond fishing. I'm not much of a traveling woman. I am a stay at home gal. I get panicky when I get out of my territory. But she is a real trooper. They do yard sales and auctions along the way too so they bring home some interesting things. We live in SW Arkansas so a trip to the big apple is something.
