Memory Album

July 26, 2007 in Scrapbooking

Talk about stretching my birthday out this year. My sister Julie and her husband RaDmscrapbookcovercopyy just made a visit to Spokane for belated celebrations of my birthday, Murphy's graduation, and Julie's birthday.  Phew! Julie wanted to hand deliver her gift to me - and now I understand why. She put together a Memory Album that ties together my quilt/design career and my family. She included quotes here and there from interviews, family gifts, photos, and more.

I'm sharing a few of the pages so you get the idea of how thoughtfully it was created.

2. A photo of Julie's oldest son Robert on a tricycle and the applique project I designed inspired by Robert.

4. A photo of my dad, Richard Kvare. I dedicated my book, Quick Country Quilting for Every Room, to his memory. He passed in 1997.Sisters_2


5. The year of Mummford. A family photo when I gave them all Mummfords for Christmas.

6.  A Sister Page! Julie and I as little girls and a more recent photo when I gave her two quilts for Christmas.

This was such a special gift and one that I will always treasure. My sister has always been one of my greatest supporters. (Thank you, Julie!)

What an absolutely precious gift your sister gave you. I love looking at family photos, no matter whose family it is. Thanks for posting some of the pages Debbie.
