Flashback Friday

I started quilting about 30 years ago, but by then I had already been sewing for quite a few years. This was my first sewing machine, a high school graduation gift I received in 1963.

My nephew has been putting some old slides onto a CD for me and he sent me this sneak peek of what he's found on those slides. I don't remember seeing this picture before, but it sure brings back many good memories from that little corner of my childhood bedroom.


  1. What a great graduation gift.

  2. Blast from the past! See that waste basket in the corner? I covered a can (maybe a potato chip can) with construction paper & pasted my friends pictures all over it. Memories of the hot dog trick on that round vanity mirror. Fun memories.

  3. I knew you'd spot that waste basket! I remember the hours we spent playing with paper dolls on that bedroom floor with Susie and Diane -- and how we all fought over Monica ;)
