I’m sending it on to my sister, who knits as fiercely as I quilt lol! Thanks for sharing! Link worked for me. I’m fascinated with women of the mid-1800’s to mid-1900’s. So adventurous, very much individuals, courageous and entrepreneurial. Much as we read about the oppression of women then, in a way, I see even more suppression now. I have a friend whose grandmother was on of 7 girls born in that time frame. Father owned the Kansas City Star, Missouri. All of the women pursed adventure and lived all over the world creating various careers. Thanks for sharing this. I love the paintings you find for us. Thank you for your research.
