4 Generations

My dad scanned a lovely old photo for me yesterday and emailed it over to me. It is the only one I know of that shows 4 generations of my family - Freeman side (my maiden name).
It shows me as a baby, my dad, my grandad and Walter Freeman (mentioned in a previous post) my great grandad. From my age I assume it was taken about 1968. I am going to get a copy of it to frame but also think I may put copies of pictures like this at the back of my Family Tree stitching when it is framed, as all of the people in the picture are recorded on the stitching.

I also mentioned last week that I had started my stitching hobby by doing tapestries. This is a picture of my favourite one that hangs in my dining room. I bought it in the late 1980s and finished it some time in the 1990s. I think it was called 'calm after the storm' it was from France and I just loved the blues and greens in it.

Tonight I have been to my stitching group, we have changed locations as the room in the pub we were in was always junked up, dark and not very comfy. We have moved to another pub down the road now, the room is much lighter and bigger and we all agreed it was better. In fact we had more members there tonight then we have had for a while.
I have been busy finishing my Summer Fairy, I just have a bit more back stitch to do...... it is never ending. I am hoping to finish completely tomorrow night and I can post a picture then.

Love the generations picture. I was able to get a similar one taken with my grandmother, dad, myself and my kids before she passed way. Things like that should be cherished.

Nice tapestry pic, love the colours in it.
What a super generations pic, i think its a great idea to add them into the back of your stitching.
I'm looking forward to seeing your finish today LOL

What a lovely photo. The boys father had a picture of four generations of his family-all the men-from him as a baby to his great grandfather. By the time we had our first son, his Gramp had died, so we had a four generations photo taken with his Nan instead. These are really special
