Oh how your letter made me giggle! It is such a lovely image to see Nan skipping around doing the Virginia reel. Of course, that dance IS very much in your time period, so it must be quite appropriate.
Yes, I believe that sewing circle IS at our house this week, if we have it. The last one was the baby shower at your house, which was a wonderful effort by your mother. I think that Auntie Lara appreciated it immensely, because it was all work that she couldn’t have done in time and would have had to be doing NOW, while her new baby screams for attention!
Besides, it was also a lovely chance to visit among the families and contemplate the reason why we were all there – the little baby!
He is such a darling, I’ve never seen such a good little baby. He’ll be a wonderful young man when he gets bigger.
Here is a picture of Elizabeth in the music room. I made her look rather like a monkey, I’m afraid!
