an evening at home on the farm, 1961

Leroy with his daughters. Janna at the piano, Beth with the toy basket, Lynn with the sewing cards, Leroy reading the Sioux City Journal. Photographed by Henrietta. Scraps of the dress Janna is wearing are in the quilts I've been making from my mother's fabrics.

What an interesting piece of fabric. I wish my mom and I had saved the fabrics from our sewing projects. I have some from sewing my children's clothing - mostly poly cottons.
