Second post for Tuesday.........APRON !

I had to post again since I got this finished before bedtime.

I think that this one turned out pretty, and I have a special lady in mind for it.  

In April of 1950, Hubby's brother, who was 15 at the time, drowned while messing around at the river with some cousins.  The water wasn't deep at all......it was just a freaky thing that happened.  Anyway, there was a local country store where all the people who lived out that way did business.  You know stores back then were a little bit of everything.  Well, the woman that ran the store had them bring Sewell (the brother) to her store, where she cleaned him up, ready for the mourners.  Imagine.......I've been thinking about it all evening as I sewed.  She was probably a fairly young woman, and maybe had children about that age herself. 

There were 6 kids in the family, and Sewell was a twin to a sister named Jewell.  It turned out that hubby's mama was pregnant at the time of this death......about 3 months along..........I just can't even imagine how she kept from losing that baby with the grief that she must have suffered.  Come October, my husband was born.  They didn't find out ahead of time back then whether it was a boy or a girl, of course, and it had been 13 years since the last child had been born, so hubby must have been some welcome sight after a bunch of sisters, and then the loss of this brother. 

The reason I've gone into this is that the lady that took care of the brother, to spare hubby's mama, is down here at the nursing home.  That was 60 years ago, and she talks to you as well as you or I .  I look forward to giving her this apron tomorrow and loving on her just a little.

  5. What a heartrending story with a loving ending. She will undoubtedly have had one of the finest days ever when you give her her apron. I must tell my hubby about this.
