Grandma quilted for others. She was 16 when she married my grandfather when he was 26. Her folks went back to Nebraska as they didn't like Oregon. She never saw them again.

Stories

CustomsF131
My grandmother was a very frugal lady. She wasted nothing. With a third grade education she was very wise. She made all the clothes for her girls; drafting patterns from the Montgomery Wards catalog and my mother said they were lovely. I remember her strawberry patch, sweet peas ( flowers) good cook and sitting at the quilting frame as she quilted for others for a little money. She sewed dresses for my sister and me- She was a very sweet kind and hard working lady.
