Then the presents were passed around. The children had letter holders to give to their children.
We went to Ann’s for dinner. Catherine & Stanley, Gene & Maxine, Lena, Ben & George, Fred and we were there. We certainly had a good time and lots to eat.Pg. 44— Grandma’s Day Journal– My Hunter Family Collection
During the Great Depression, families did things that didn’t cost a lot of money. Cheering each other up at a family dinner would have been ideal. From my stash of linens, I have the cutest tea towels made for me by my Aunt Glenda. These are one of my favorite wedding gifts we received! Each one is hand appliqued and embroidered by her using a Sunbonnet Sue pattern that once belonged to my Great Grandmother Reed, Inez’s mother. I imagine they dressed up quilt blocks with these patterns using old feed sack fabrics. Aunt Glenda kept to the tradition with using fabrics in a similar style. And yes, I have some photos of these treasured towels. Just 2 for this post. It’s currently naptime and I’m not digging in the linen closet and risking waking up the baby. I’m sure you’ll understand 🙂
Feed sack posts abound on Pinterest. Here are a few ideas, other than quilts, that can be made with feedsack fabric. Enjoy!
