Seamstresses in Fine Art July 11, 2015 Threading the Needle Platinum Print Nancy Ford Cones (1869-1962) American Nancy Ford Cones Related 10 responses to “Seamstresses in Fine Art” So sweet. Wow, do platinum prints from this era look like sketches? This one is so beautiful!!!! The photo is wonderful! Even more wonderful is that your site is back ;} How precious! Thanks for posting these. This so sweet. A grandmother so patient teaching a granddaughter to sew. I remember the days. Heartwarming. I’m preparing to spend a week at camp with my granddaughters and am busy packing the hand sewing projects. 🙂 That surely captures the teaching stage with love. I love the juxtaposition of the old, gnarled hands and the plump little young ones. The concentration on the little girl’s face and the calm, patient look on the grandmother’s just warms my heart. Thanks! I love this picture. Ditto to what everyone has observed…It is a very touching photo.. Comments are closed.
