I think today’s Flashback Friday is my very favorite yet. The pictures below are of my Great Grandma Ada Elizabeth Ericksen Anderson.
Ada had Scarlet Fever when she was young, which made her heart weak. She had an enlarged heart. She passed away when my Grandpa Reid was only 6, also leaving 5 and 1 year old boys. She was 28 years old. It makes me happy to think that maybe part of my love of sewing came from her and her talents, even if it was more of a necessity for her than a hobby like it is for me.
If you have a special story you’d like to share, email me.
