MY FIRST MOTHER’S DAY as a mom is a bit of a blur. I’d only held the title for 20 days (my son was still a wrinkly little bundle), and as a newbie didn’t feel that I’d earned the day’s accolades.This issue features plenty of women who have.

Matthew Engesser Eden Prairie, Minnesota “A STITCH IN TIME” (January 2019, page 42) brought back memories. We lived on a farm during the 1940s, when the feed for our chickens came in pretty print bags. None of them went to waste, but were turned into dresses and skirts for my mother, my sister and me.
