Crafting and scrapbooking heritage....

This photo album belonged to my grandmother, Dora Schroeder. It is a beautiful album, made for photos which were rare and treasured items.

My grandmother and two of her brothers are in these photos. But what is the dark textile in the corner?

A pair of mittens knitted for my grandmother by her mother as a Christmas gift. The year was 1912. [Note: I had to lighten this in an attempt to make the decorative stitches around the cuff stand out. They are still hard to distinguish. The mittens are actually very black and probably seldom used...being saved for "best" and treasured as they were from her mother!]
