heritage















last night keith rediscovered his grandmother's thimble and gave it to me to use. minnie dower was from conche on the northern penninsula and raised 9 children. like many outport women she had to "make do". the only floor coverings that the family
had were the hooked mats she and the girls made. this thimble holds this history...

Beautiful story and I'm sure that thimble will bring many great stories to come.
