185. There was no tv, radio, phone..or even electricity..long winter days

were "made" for quilt-making, sewing etc.. People would have gone nuts if the did not have indoor chores too.. hence "cabin fever"..

And for people who commented on the fantastic stitches.. people used to actually make perfect stitches. I marvel at my hand-me-down homemade quilts from the 1800's.. They were experts at hand sewing.. My grandmother even made her own lace.. tatting is a lost art :(
