Dear Grandparents: the hat and the seamstress
Dear Grandpa: saw a picture of cousin W. the other day. He wears his newsboy cap, the same way you do…slouched at an angle. I told him he looked like you…from the hat up. My main memory of you wearing that hat was during some holiday or other…you were a bit…sloshed, dancing around with your hat at a rakish angle. 🙂 Hugs.
Dear Grandma: I do occasionally see bits of you in the women in my family. I mostly remember you as a seamstress, though I’m sure you were crafty in other ways besides ceramics. Mom also sews, but she excels in her flower arranging. The few pieces I’ve seen have been wonderful. I have three of them that I treasure. She’s also (FINALLY) been teaching herself to draw. My sister likes to craft too. She excels in her jewelry crafting though she has been teaching herself to sew too. Me, I do a little of everything. I sew, I craft, I stitch, I do jewelry and simple flower arrangements. So with everything we make, a little of your talent lives on. Hugs
