Christmas Present Project

January 2, 2011

As usual, my family was very good to me for Christmas. Besides breakfast being cooked by Jennie and dinner by Carrie, and time for Patti and I to share Christmas with both in the same day, was the best.

Carrie gave me a quilt that she had made for Christmas which I will have to share on this blog at some point. It clearly was filled with what some of my history is and certainly my interests. But that’s another story.

As I have shared on Facebook and Flickr

Patti gave me a Flip-Pal mobile scanner for Christmas. It’s the coolest. The Flickr slide show will have the 15 scans that were done, and the Easy Stitch that put those scans together into one piece.

The second project was a large photo of my grandparents high school graduation picture:

It was an 18 scan photo, stitched into one.

Now that the playing is over, the project that I am working on, is a wall hanging that my mother had in her room at the house, and was in their room in the Assisted Living Center before my parents passed away. That wall hanging has all sorts of patches and pins from their journeys around the country, or should I say world. Not including all of the pictures and slides that I have, these patches and the Journal that my mother kept about these trips will start to appear here.

So far, I have 80 scan’s, using the Flip-Pal and I am about 1/3 of the way done. Will try to post, as part of this New Years Resolution, many of these patches with some information that might be in the journals.

In celebration for this, the family will re-trace one of these “great adventures” later this year. One of the best trips that we heard about for years, was a cruise in Alaska. Well, that’s only fair, because my parents re-traced one of my trips through the Panama Canal. But, that’s another story.

Like I said, lots of material, now to keep to that resolution.

Happy New Year to ALL.


Resolution: I’m Posting every week in 2011!

December 30, 2010

I’ve decided I want to blog more. Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now. I will be posting on this blog once a week for all of 2011. I have the material, want to share my research and have lots of Worthington Newsletters to post.

I know it won’t be easy, but it might be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. Therefore I’m promising to make use of The WeeklyPost, and the community of other Genea-Bloggers with similar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.

If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.

Russ
