More Dresdens

Hello Everyone,

I mush have an addictive personality since I'm so addicted to quilting and designing.  When Patti from Marcus Fabrics sent me a box of Past Endearments, the fabrics immediately started talking to me. 

I'm going to put the little vases together connected by a flange.....of course.  You know me, I love adding extra little touches especially when the fabric collection includes a plaid!

As always, it's been a busy week under the oaks at Sew'n Wild Oaks.  Our eldest son turned 40 on Wednesday.  There's a big party this weekend with a 1970's theme.  My job was to prepare a slide show for the event.  I've been sifting through hundreds, yes hundreds of pictures over the past two weeks.  I've been scanning photos so everything is digital for the slide show.  The walk down memory lane has been melancholy.  This is a picture of me holding a 5-week old Charlie.  I can't believe I ever had hair that long.  Very 1975ish.

Fast forward 33 years to Charlie, now Chuck, holding his little 5-week old son Jess.  Jess is all dressed up for his Godmother's wedding.

Fast forward another five years to Coach Chuck with Jess.

Thank you for so many years of happiness Chuck.  Here's to another 40!  Love you and your family forever.


P.S. Chuck takes after his ruggedly handsome Dad!


  1. Very pretty the flange....LOL....didn't 40 years go by fast.....

  2. Wonderful tribute, Lynn, to a great guy and special nephew! Oh, and I love the new blocks!

  3. Congratulations on a "Mom Job" done well, Lynn!
    P.S. From the look on 5-week old Charlie's face as he looks over your shoulder, I'm not sure he believed you had hair that long either!!

  4. What a sweet trip through time. Your grandson is as beautiful as your handsome son.

    Love your vase blocks and can't wait to see the completed project!

  5. Your vases are perfect for the flange and I bet there will be something gorgeous inside that cream area! What lovely photos of your son - and not only is your hair long - it's RED! Wow! Happy Birthday to Chuck!

  6. What a cute baby he was, and a handsome dad he is now. And your hair; it was just beautiful!!! Were your hair auburn, or is it just the way the picture made it look? Wish we could see the front of you and your happy Mommy face in that picture! :-) Many best wishes for a very happy birthday celebration!! Hugs, H

  7. Wow, I could say that was my photo...same colour hair and length way back then.

    We have been doing the photo walk down memory lane too but for a different event. Ours was for the passing of my dear husband on the 16th and his funeral and wake on the 23rd. Very melancholic for us.

    Love dresdens and the way you are using them.

  8. Sweet, sweet pics, Lynn. Happy birthday to Chuck!
