Sundays in 1901
If you read my previous blog, you would know some of Agnes’s story.
It’s a story from quite long ago, but does not go far enough back to tell any of her childhood. I don’t have much to say about those days, as she was an elderly lady well before I met her, but I have in my possession two embroidered biblical texts that she sewed as a child of 11 years old. In those days (these were made in 1901), in any Christian household, it was usually a rule that no work (and maybe no play?) was to be done on the Sabbath and Agnes would have sat sewing such as these on Sundays.
The other one I have says, “The Lord is My Shepherd”. They are beautiful antique works of art, done by a child. Each framed ‘picture’ measures about 24 inches, x 10 inches. They are hung on my bedroom wall.
