It was a cold and windy time my friends!

Saturday, February 28, 1925: We ironed and did the Saturday work. Friday, Dad & Len went to town and Aunt Annie rode along up home. It was very cold. We baked and washed.

On Thursday, Len went to Scales Mound to get oats. It was a very cold and windy day so Aunt Annie didn’t go home. We finished quilting my quilt before supper. Aunt Annie had come down on Wednesday afternoon to help us quilt. She staid all night.

Tuesday, we quilted some. It was a dark, cloudy day. Len sawed wood over at Bonhoff’s. We had put my yellow nine patch quilt* in the frame and quilted a little on Monday. There was no mail on Monday.

*Nine-patch quilt blocks initially contain nine equal squares. The squares are arranged three rows across and three down, as shown in this beautiful garden nine patch (block) quilt.
