award this year also for depiction of the theme. Brings back memories.
I did not get any quilting time that day. went to visit friends and then there are the football games to check on. Great way to welcome 2020;
Do you write Christmas Letters? I was trying to understand why I write them and the habit has been going on my whole life. Started with my mother.
I think maybe it is because as a child or in my younger days that is what my parents did, write letters.
They traveled to many countries and made many friends. Keeping in touch when they left for another place. Now it is email. I just received an email from the daughter of my mothers friend from Indonesia, from the 1930's. Her mother was a child during that war. This lady lives in South Africa now. Her family survived the prison camp in Indonesia. My mother at that time took one of the two last ships to leave for the States. It is a long story but I found out that only one ship made it to the U.S.A. the other was bombed. My mother was lucky to be on the right ship that docked in San Francisco.
We are all like the ships passing in the night as they used to say. I am going thru my parents photos and albums. We have lived in our home here for 20 years and there is a lot to look thru. My quilting studio is the worst place. So I am tackling the photographs, some when I was little, others are from eons ago. Before me. Also sending some that I recognize to relatives. A photo of my mother's brother, was sent to his granddaughter on the East Coast. Wonder what else I will find.
And I did get a few moments this week to sit in the studio at the sewing machine. More about that later.
Hope you had a great Holiday, now make it a wonderful 2020. Chat soon!
