On a recent trip to visit my folks, my dad unearthed some ancient slides and we were treated to an Epic Slide Show. I was delighted when an image of my grandmother slid into place and onto the little portable screen.
There she is- Grandma at her sewing machine! She didn't sew much for fun; she sewed because she had to mend things. She did, however, enjoy needlepoint and crewel embroidery. I'm so glad to have this photo showing part of my "needlewoman" heritage.
