Family Tree through Tracks of My Texas Ancestors,
Ancestry.com Research and a
Photo Album Scrapbook.
With the First Scrapbook finished and the second on on the back burner
at least until after Christmas.
It is time to get back to
CollectInTexas Gals Collections.
Let's start with a
Fall Family Heirloom Find.
Thank you Maime for this exquisite, beautifully crocheted tablecloth. Although, it was meant for your daughter Kate and probably her descendents, of which I am not one, I will treasure it for the Family Heirloom it was surely meant to be.
According to the note that was folded in the tablecloth along with the pattern, this was the second one that you made. How incredible is that! What a special gift to Vivian and to Kate, who by all indications, must have passed it on to one of her descendents. This I know, Mamie, from the research I did on Ancestry.com which I was able to find because of the documentation of names in the note. Thankfully, one of your descendents wanted your crocheted legacy to endure.
Maime, it is now the Fall of 2012.
I thought you would want to know that some Eighty years later your
Hearthside Heirloom Crocheted Tablecloth
is as beautiful and perfect as they day you gave it to Kate.
This donated from an Estate Sale.
Thank-you Maime, your Crocheted Tablecloth adorns my dining room table
and is now my
Treasured Fall Family Heirloom Find.
