History repeats itself

1980

We visited my parents in Dorsten, Germany. This is in their back garden. Carsten, my sister's oldest, picked Helen up in his arms. Maren on the left and Tobias, the youngest, on the right.
2002

Trying to re-create the picture including Tobias' shorts. Same place. Sarah was there too but not allowed to be in the picture. Carsten called to 'hurry up' .

















1977

Helen in her room in our first house in St Louis, Missouri. I had made Jemima Puddle Duck for her before Helen was even born. She loved that duck including chewing on the beak. It got mended several times.
I had made the pictures for her too. Fabric and felt.
 2011

William in his room. The pictures are hung. Jemima cleaned and mended one more time. No feet though. I can't find the pattern. It is in my hobby room somewhere. Sigh.
































































Aahh, were did the years go?
