Somebody asked me if she could put a photo of one of my quilts in a book she's writing and of course I said yes. But when it came time to send the photo, I realized that the quilt dates back to the era when photography resulted in slides. I do have a digital image of the quilt, but it's not high enough resolution for publishing.
I've been meaning to get my old slides converted to digital images for a long time, but haven't gotten around to it, so when the author said I could just send her a slide I said great. And then embarked upon a voyage to the past!
