Sewing Machine Memories as I wandered through the times past in the village.
She once sewed right through her pointer finger with it. She also caught her fingers in the wringer washer.
Times were hard for her, my grandfather had a stroke that put him in a wheel chair while her 7 children were young. 2 girls 5 boys born between 1906 and 1917.
She ran the general store, took care of her husband, raised 7 children, sewed all their clothing and cooked and cleaned. All of this in rural Georgia during the depression and as the south still reeled from the Civil War between the states.
