while I was trying to keep up with Gran, she showed me some of the needlework pieces her own mother prepared back in the days for her own dowry chest. they were three sisters, all experienced needleworkers who designed, chose threads and embroidered lots of pieces that were sold to rich people, famous restaurants, etc. unfortunately two of them died young of tuberculosis and the spell was broken.
I couldn’t learn anything from my Great-Grandmother cause by the time I was born she already showed signs of Alzheimer and passed away when I was three. instead of saddening us for all the great people we lost, my Granny and I took out her mother’s dowry chest and found incredible things in it, all that’s left of the treasures she worked on – cause sad but true, she left most of them to the local parish. dafaq.
there are a few spots here and there but considering she was born in 1910, they all aged pretty well.
