flashback friday:sunday's best

We have many of these professional family portraits that were were arranged by our church and taken every few years for the church directory. Am I detecting a subtle nautical theme here? We are looking pretty coordinated in this photos, our outfits were surely masterminded by the lady in red.

Thanks to everyone for their suggestions about my fabric smell problem. It looks as though baking soda is the key and I will try that soon. I have another question for you now. I have just joined flickr in order to officially participate in flashback Friday. I can't figure out how to put my photos up in the group account. I have joined the group... can anyone give me some hints? cheers.

For you leah... my cathedral quilt in progress (and I am telling you, progress is slow). I forgot how time consuming hand sewing is, and even though I am using the machine for joining the squares, it took me hours to sew around just 4 windows. It's okay though. In our fast paced, instant oatmeal society, being forced to slow down and do something the long way is exactly what we all need.

have a great weekend everyone :)

Woot!
I'm so excited....
The quilt looks fabulous, you're doing a beautiful job......
Can I post your photo on my blog? Pretty please?

As for Flickr, go to your photo page, and click on the photo you want to add to Flashback Friday. At the top of the photo is a row of buttons, one of which should say "add to group". Click that, then click on the group you want to send it to. Then it will ask you if you're sure, say yes, and you're done! Easy peasy!

Looking forward to seeing you on Flickr....

I've been enjoying you flashbacks. :)
& your quilt looks lovely! I went to have a peep at the tutorial by hyena in petticoats and I'm so blown away. I feel like making one myself now. :)

Ha ha! I LOVE the photo! reminds me of my dad's graduation photo in which I sit on my mother's knee, and she's plucked her eyebrows so she looks permanently surprised. It was 1974, and my sister was wearing something that looked like bad wall paper... ! Must dig out old photos once we've moved house...

Oh those funny posed family portraits. I wonder if people do them anymore? The quilt is so cool, as is Leah's and I am impressed that you are making it. Handsewing is good!
