I came across this photograph of myself and I’m pretty sure you made the dress. Maybe Sue can tell me for sure. Ruthie would have been too young. I don’t even know how old I am in that picture. I’d guess around three, which puts Ruthie at a year and a half.
I never appreciated the clothes that you sewed for us. I liked them and was excited to get to choose the outfit color—I was one color and Ruthie was another. Just like this photo below. Your grandson Casey painted this picture from a photograph. He used a drawing tool from the computer. I have no idea how he does it. The first time he did a drawing like that for me, I thought he scanned in the photo and then manipulated it to make it look like a painting. Then I found out he actually painted it by hand via the computer. It gave me a deeper appreciation for his art. I gave the painting to Ruthie for her 50th. There’s a piece of you in there—our homemade dresses.
