throwback thursday

without any quilty photos of mine to show YET.....decided to post this photo of my paternal great-grandfather, joseph, with his wife, annette, and baby son charles f, my paternal grandfather.  joseph is the civil war vet on my father's side of the family, was at Appomattox when lee surrendered.  easy to see where the good looks come from...he was quite dashing for his day i would think.  so very proud of all those who served on both sides of my family.  ***  another nice early spring day, still on the cool side and occasional gray skies.  good day to do just about anything.   ***  lamenting being so far behind in my "stars in a time warp" sewalong but pretty sure can catch up quick once all accoutrements are at hand.  this week is paisley and i absolutely LOVE paisley fabrics, have a collection of them so no problem getting these done.  *** even tho currently without my own housing, acutely aware of how fortunate i am and how much worse things could be.  like snow, for instance, and a host of other complications.  so whatever your situation, try and stay positive.  yeah, i know, it's a job all by itself.....
