Introducing My GUF & Other Important Family Members


Last week I received a very nice note from my GUF (Great Uncle Francis) and his wife GA Myrtle (GAM). In my Jan 13th post I spoke about GUF and how he is the person primarily responsible for my tatting obsession. He is 94 years old and still actively tats! I have been sending them pieces of my work as well as pictures of some of the others. I was happy to get this picture so I could introduce them to you .
Standing from left to right is my Mother, GAM, and my Father. Seated is GUF. GAM is my Maternal Grandmother's sister.








This second picture is of my GU Leonard (GUL) with his sister, GAM. GUL is my maternal Grandmother's brother. My parents and GUL live in ND and GUF and GAM live in OK. These pictures were taken when my parents took GUL to visit his sister and brother-in-law for his 84th birthday last October.

Hi Bonnie. I tried to post a comment on Sunday and had a problem with Blogger. Go figure. I love the pictures and I'm so glad you have such a wonderful family. It's good to put faces with the stories you have told.

How cool that you can document your tatting roots with pics and samples! Families are wonderful.
