I love the whole idea of this quilt you are creating and I love how you are creating it. It’s going to be amazing, and it makes me want to do something scrappy. Haven’t made anything for myself in quite a long time. Hmmmmm.
Oh my goodness. I have some photos from here and there in my childhood but my dad was the photographer, not me. I think what you have amassed and organized from your past is truly amazing. Also it’s amazing how much like you that childhood photo of you is. I love seeing photos like those of people I know and going OMG it’s YOU but tiny you. I remember the disc camera but never owned one. I had an instamatic for a while and have some photos from it and they are pretty crappy but I’m not sure how much of that is the camera and how much is just my shitty photography, lol.
This quilt is really the only thing I’ve been able to get excited about this month other than your sixty million backgrounds for the Sonoma quilt! It helps a lot to focus on that and makes me feel connected to a great-grandmother I never met.
The crappy photos were probably the camera. 35mm was the best for a loooong time. I had a really cheap 35mm when we first became parents and Big E later replaced it with a really nice Canon Rebel, which I still have. I’ve had a succession of digital cameras and still have the last one I got (also a gift from E). My phone takes SUCH GOOD photos now that I rarely use my actual camera. G’s reaction to my explaining all the cameras I had over the years was “that explains a lot!” 😛
