Oh Ellen I've been enjoying all the photos you've been sharing. I was surprised to see a huswif/ from long ago. This lady who made this sure new of all the tools to have for sewing & how detailed (even though old). Thank you for sharing. Such a remarkable trip you had. Hope your feeling better.
love Annette
