Eddie’s Collection of Junk: More Examples of Domestic Science 1921-23

Eddie had a huge wooden loom her in apartment for many years. I mean huge, it was a floor model.  I think it was for rugs, but I cannot remember now.  Yes she was a weaver, knitter, embroidery, sewing, cooking and oh yes photographer.  Here I think you see on the left of her one of her pillows.  Apparently she is working on some project.  This photo was taken in about 1940 but I think it tells you that her love of sewing, needlework and more followed her all her life.
