Memories Sparked The Feedsack Dress — 6 Comments

  1. You shared those memories with your blog post. I enjoyed reading it.

    • Thanks. I wrote a much longer account of childhood memories for myself and the family.

  2. I love your memories. They are so much like mine, growing up just a few miles down the road. Love all the books, and yes I also grew up in Feed Sack Dresses, when we wore dresses!!! Thank You for reminding me of growing up in a wonderful place. Louise

    • Thanks, Louise. I think I’ve told you that your grandmother was my Sunday school teacher.

  3. It’s a lovely recollection, Carolyn. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your sister. I remember feedsack skirts, dish towels and pillow cases. I remember when Grandma Lillis first got the REA at the Lillis farm. I recall how dark it was before and how bright the stars were at night, never to be again.
