Family Photos

My sister and I had fun on Wednesday going through old family photos and dividing them up.  That was the hard bit.  Some of the photos we had double of, some will have to be photo-copied.  Just as well there aren't six of us!  
The photos have been stored at our Dad's house in his old suitcase (above).  He was given this suitcase for his 21st birthday, so it is some 60 years old and in very good condition.  The handle looks like it has been replaced at some stage, but the whole thing is leather.  Very heavy and very sturdy.  I have inherited the suitcase and think it would make nice storage for my fabrics.
Guess who the baby is with the "sausage curl" in her hair?  Cute eh? 

Hopefully, I will get my quilting mojo back this weekend and start quilting this Kaffe Fassett quilt.  It is very hot here today, so probably won't start it til later this evening with the AC on.  In the meantime, there is plenty of sorting out of the sewing room to do after the painting, and lots and lots of ironing to catch up on.
