On Wednesday afternoons I go hand quilting at the church. Today we were 7 around the frame. It just warms my heart to have a big crowd. If you have ever been part of a hand quilting group you know that everyone has stories. Our group tells stories from the old days.
Today, we laughed and laughed. They talked about all the ways that women tried to curl their hair. From wrapping your hair with cloth bits and some even wrapped their locks around crumpled paper. Each one had stories about pin curls and then came the day of the perms... They called them Toni's and those little curlers that look like bones. I have some of those by the way!! Then how they had brush curlers, foam curlers and such. Each one had a bigger and better story!! We laughed all afternoon.
Then the conversation turned to bloomers and nylons. Not me, but almost everyone else talked about getting bloomers for Christmas. For the most part the were an awful blue! Some of these gals said that during the depression, women painted a black line on the back of their leg so it would appear that they were wearing nylons.
What stories do you hear around your frame?
Thanks For Noticing :)
