Great Grandma Effie Showing my mother in law tatting

Okay..I have to share this story. Years ago my husband and I flew to Florida to drive back home a car his mother gave us since she had no need for two cars. While we were there she gave me a black shuttle and said it was her mothers. IF Gary's Mom was still alive she would have been 100yeas old on 12/13/20014 which was last month. Her mother died at a young age so her Grandmother raised her. Yesterday, my husband and I were at his cousin's house trying to put names to faces i...n really old family pictures and my husband's cousin says to me here is a picture of Gladys (Gary's Mother) watching her Grandmother (Effie) Tatting. Well...you would have thought I stroke GOLD but I "struck" an old picture of ancestral family member watching another family member tatting. How exciting is that?!!!! So in these pictures is the shuttle that I was given, which is the same one in the picture. I scanned the picture so I can share my excitement with you and to have a blow up so I can print out 8" by 10" to put in frame and hang on my wall. Thank you so much Cynthia!!!!!!
