Family History

Nonna came over from Italy and with her she brought a piece of history,bed linen weaved in her grandfathers mill and crocheted by her grandmother and mother.
I explained to the girls how everything they saw realms and realms of bed covers have been made from scratch from their family. Touched and used by many and now with us for safe keeping. I loved imagining the life in the small village of Petrella all those years ago, the mill, the hard work, the great grandmother crocheting at night after a long days toil of children, farm animals and a mill. Those days are long gone, I stress because I dont get time to write this blog often. The history lives on in that fabric. We will treasure it forever. Thank you Nonna for trusting us with your keepsakes.
