Adding more photos...pinned on tonight...showing family dinner (I am about six in the photo, and we eat on china plates I inherited from Ella, my grandma; this morning I went hunting for her costume jewelry. Finally found it in a soft zippered box in a drawer by my desk...barely remembered putting it there (how many years ago?)...when Ella died I got to go to her house and pick over the belongings no one else wanted and I came home with so many treasures...her Singer sewing machine, her costume jewelry, her china dishware, kitchen ware, crystal glasses, table cloths, her menorah. I can't even remember now what all...but I still have most of it. And some will go into this quilt wall hanging. So much is gelling in my head and heart while making it. Tomorrow I will sew more. What a journey this is. What a trip back in time. What a blessing.
