It keeps us reminded that there was time when things are less talking about the money and all that.

I really am amazed how Freeda and Eli can start off from scratch to have a full working farm, house, 8 children and a lot of foster children! That really is a wow! They didn’t talk about money at all, but what they did would certainly require enormuous financial power and they still get to go abroad and also had a happy large family life.

They beat the Brady Bunch out big. Great story!

It’s like Laura Ingalls Wilder come to life. I love the image of the children writing their names in the frost on the side of the barn. Thanks for sharing.

Such people are a treasure and growing more rare by the day. I know where I’m from they are getting to be few and far between. My cousin used to let children just up and stay at his house as long as they wanted and then they would leave. One little native american boy I would love to see now but who knows where he is. There were huge poplar trees in his yard and this little boy would climb them and trim the limbs!

I love the quilt. Circles are my favorite shapes so its right down my alley.

I love the ladies gratitude.

Researching and hearing the story of Freeda’s life for this post was a privilege. Freeda makes me think we could all be out gardening, doing chores and writing when we are well into our 90’s.

Hi Imagineannie,

Thank you for your comments about Freeda. I am glad I got the quilt too. It is a beautiful quilt, but knowing Freeda makes it even more precious.

I am also thrilled that you got the quilt – right when you need something warm and beautiful.

Thank you for your kind words and for visiting. Freeda does make beautiful quilts. Her life story is also amazing to me.
