Yarn and Old-fashioned Homemaking
My precious sisters playing with their yarn. They don't use it for knitting, instead they use it for a game. "Let's see how long it takes us to unwind this yarn through the entire house, and how long it takes Katie to wind it up again." They love it, but I would prefer some go-fish, marbles or dodge-brick. Anything but winding up a several thousand square-foot yarn web! So I finally decided to teach them how to wind it themselves, the result was a precious picture of two future homemakers. Another thing I love about this photo is the patchwork quilt on the toddler bed in the background. It was hand-quilted by my great-grandmother shortly before she passed-away. It is one of my most cherished possessions and will go in my hopechest to be used in my own home one day.
