We recently visited my sweet mother in love. I asked her if I could read her mom’s diary again. She was a prolific quilter and a woman I loved dearly. I love these glimpses into her daily life in the late 1930s. I thought you would as well.
Have a great day!
I loved reading excerpts from the diary! I think she was as crazy about quilting as we are!
Thanks for sharing her diary and a look into the past world of quilting. She was a very busy lady. Love reading it !!!
What a treasure. Thanks so much for sharing this. She must have been a remarkable woman. I record what I do in my sewing room on a daily basis and I always wonder who will really be interested in 100 years?
Wow, folks worked so hard back then, didn’t they? Thank goodness there was time for quilting!
thanks for sharing your grandma’s diary. my grandma did the same thing. she wrote on calendars. my mother had one of those daily planners and she did the same thing. it was important to her to make sure she had the temps for the days. why, cuz her mother did it. but…her parents farmed. my familly was military and we did not. see, people really are more similar than not. patti in florida
What an interesting peek into everyday life back in the day. No mention of the hardships of the Depression. I wish she had written a bit about what they had for meals. And one has to wonder what caused Dan Good to be shot and killed. Thanks for sharing.
Have some of quilts survived for you to enjoy?
What a treasure! Thank you for sharing it with us.
I love this so much!
Love the diary entries! Nostalgia for a time long gone, gratitude for the ease of life today. Strong women!
That diary is a great treasure. Besides the prolific quilting, there was a lot of talk about winter, snow, blizzard and cold. It is getting colder here so winter has been on my mind. I guess I should take comfort in the fact that winter provides more time and excuse to do more quilting.
Thank You for sharing this treasures . I loved reading the words brought joy to my heart.
What a wonderful glimpse into the past. Thank you for sharing.
Absolutely LOVE this!! What a treasured piece of history!!
What a wonderful glimpse into that era! Loved that quilting and handwork played such a prominent part in her life. She certainly had more discipline that I do about work first, then play. Elsie and Wilma were such wonderful names and not seen anymore. My grandmother, who died around 1937, was an Elsie; Wilma was my late mother-in-law’s name. Thanks for sharing!
