She did her quilting in the winters while grandpa cracked the walnuts he'd collected from farms all over their county. Here's a picture of her working on a rug with her arthritis-gnarled hands.
I love your Grandma! What a legacy she left your family. Makes me tired just thinking of all the work she did.
