My mother was born in April 1914 in Graves County Kentucky. She was one of eight children. When her father died, very young, they moved to the city (Paducah) and she and some of her sisters worked at the cigar factory to help support them. They were just little children.
She made lots of quilts in the sixties, using double-knit fabrics. That's what we wore then and were so happy because things didn't have to be ironed. She especially loved Dutch Dolls.
If she were here this morning we would ask her to do the Charleston for us. She would be happy to.
Just remembering....have a happy Tuesday everyone.
