Friday, July 17, 1925

Friday, July 17, 1925

Did a lot of odd jobs mending, etc. then worked on my comfort top and pieced about half of it. Letters from the boys report a great time. They are coming home in the morning. I enjoy the peace and rest but of course I will be glad to see the boys. I have been tired ever since my trip to Mama’s. I was meant to be a home body, I guess.

(How nice that the two older boys thought to write their mother a letter while they were gone for the week. Would that happen today? How many people actually still send letters through the mail?

Grandma did seem to spend a lot of time sewing, either mending or making clothes, or in this case making a comforter for a bed.)

  1. When I read "comfort top" I thought she was making a maternity shirt! Duh!

  2. How funny, Carol - the post from Beth is almost word for word what I was going to write, including the Duh!

    Such a phrase seemed to fit with an indirect way of referring to pregnancy... but unless Ruth acted like Britney Spears, she wouldn't need to be piercing a maternity top, now, would she?

  3. I made the assumption that a "comfort top" was a comforter for a bed, but perhaps it is a piece of clothing? I'll have to do some checking on that.

    Thanks for the comments! Grandma is quite the blogger, isn't she, even after 81 years.

    I agree with the others. I think she was working on a maternity top.
