    The women of that era were wonderful at working a miracle with what they had..Times have been much harder in the past for more people...Today areas are more poverty stricken than even back then...I don't know how resourceful the modern woman is though..Sara..When I lived on the farm, we got animal food in sacks called feed sacks..They were printed calico cloth..My mother used those to make clothes for they were one large piece of cloth..She would ask the man loading the feed to get her ones.Sara

    I remember my mom and grandma used those printed flour sacks to make so many things. What a fun memory this is......it would also be a perfect entry to the contest asking for the "ordinary". What is more ordinary than those old flour sacks?? Well done, Mystic Rose!!

    And isn't that saying part of the current conservation message? "Reduce, reuse, recycle"

    That is what my grandmother did when she was younger, she used to make clothing out of bleached flour sacks for my herself when she was younger! She also made other items, as did my Great-grandmother! They utilized everything they had as money was very low! This is a tremendous write my friend! I really enjoyed reading this impressive poem this evening! What a terrific piece, Great Work!!
