Wrapped Up Quilt Project Pamela Stokes — Matthews, North Carolina From 2007 to 2014, my family owned a quilt shop in Cadillac, Michigan. Myself, my husband, Rick, and our children, Rachael and Clay, operated the place, selling quilting cottons, sewing machines, and notions, and providing machine service. We were always excited to get new fabrics in the shop, and we couldn’t wait to sew up blocks and quilts to put on display.

The design she chose called for cutting strips in random widths, sewing them together, and then sub-cutting them into blocks. Before she could finish the quilt, new fabrics arrived, and…

“I love this photo of my mom showing off the mink stole my dad won at a raffle at work, and then gave to her for Christmas in 1958, three years before I was born. Dad built the coffee table the TV is sitting on, and we had those curtains until the 1970s.” — Barbara Shrader, Romney, West Virginia “This photograph of me was taken Christmas Day 1962 in Kensington, Maryland, in the house where I grew up. It looks like I might’ve been more impressed with the box than with the gift it contained.” —Barbara Shrader, Romney, West Virginia “This photograph is of me, at age 3, thoroughly enjoying my gift of a beautiful new car on Christmas Day 1957.” —Carol Norwood, Myerstown, Pennsylvania “This photo is of my brother, Jeffrey, and…

scent of a cellar

Every fall and winter, I walk down into my basement pantry and grab jars of canned tomatoes, pickled okra, or peaches for supper. I stand in front of those shelves filled with food I’ve put up all summer long, and dream up a meal. Those of you who put up your own food understand the satisfaction of pulling from your own stock to feed your family. Whenever I crawl into my dingy basement, I compare it with the best food cellar I’ve ever known: my grandmother Josephine’s — a true cellar, dug into the soil directly below the center of the house so it could double as a storm cellar. I always enjoyed getting sent into that underground place, because it was a sensory experience. The wooden stairs were steep; just…

Fuller “I COULD CULL my hens in just a few minutes by the use of the electric light,” says F.W. Koehler, Putnam County, Illinois. “If I turn on the lights an hour before the first streak of dawn, the good layers will all get off the roosts and start eating. The drones will remain. I am sure that culling on this basis in the latter part of the summer would be…
