Good mail!

I ordered several used books about vintage quilts and quilt history last week, and the first two came today.

I'm especially excited to receive the one about quilts at the 1933 World's Fair.  That Fair took place in Chicago, where I grew up.  My grandfather, an electrician, was the supervisor of the Western Union installation at the Fair, and my dad as a young boy went with his father to work at the Fair regularly. Dad still has detailed memories of being at the Fair, eighty years later, and he'll enjoy looking at this book too :)
