memory books

Trying to catch up with my posts! Here are some photos of the finished memory books I made for the family. Top left photo shows the inside cover with the swatch of fabric cut from one of my Grandma's skirt. I included a little letter explaining the process of putting these books together, some Hawiian history and stories and photos of my Grandma through the years on all of her returns to the islands. I'm really glad I did these - I think everyone loved them. There were so many emotions that day - I know we all felt good about taking my Grandma back home, but in another sense - I don't think any of us really wanted to let go.
