Caught in thoughtful reflection was this moment of my daughter reading a description of this piece entered into the Missouri State Fair exhibits. I love seeing her in such concentrated interest. Here’s what captured her so.

After she read it she asked me, “Mom did you See that? Can you Imagine having to display your sewing abilities to Marry?!” This brought on some thought-provoking discussion of the times they lived in compared to ours.

None of the photos do the piece any justice, but you can see why we were spellbound and in awe of the delicate beauty displayed in this woman’s needlework of 1841.
