I really took my time adding the border. I did one side a day so I could concentrate on those corners.
All the sides were at or close to 61" so I only had to make a minor adjustment or two.
The mitered corners look like this :)
This is the fabric for the back. Now I need to go to Michaels and use my 50% off coupon for a package of Hobbs 80/20 batting.
***THANK YOU, JANET for sending more of the black fabric for my selvage strings project! I really appreciate it!
I nearly forgot about this genealogy binder I put together (more than a few years ago) until I recently came across it while looking for something else.
This binder contains copies of records beginning with me and ending with my great-grandparents.
Within each section are copies (no originals) of all sorts of records: vital, school, census, military, legal, publicity, photos, etc. The record above is a page from my mother's high school yearbook in 1929.
The 1900 census record of my gr-grandparents, Samuel and Irene Bower, NYC. I always transcribed the original record.
The 1906 NYC marriage certificate of my paternal grandparents, Ralph Butler Davis and Maud Hankinson.
The Civil War record of my gr-grandfather, Horace Davis. I also have a photo of him in uniform.
A letter dated 1862 written by my gr-grandmother, Margarette Edwards Davis, when her husband was away at war.
A photo of my gr-grandmother Irene McCord Bower that was taken in 1886 at the time of her marriage.
At the end of each section I include burial info--plot, gravestone, and obituary. It's so easy to get carried away with genealogy research as every bit of information leads to that never ending quest for another piece to the puzzle :)
Have a great week!
