Sometimes reading a book brings things to mind in my home. This is my antique cradle. I handmade a ticking mattress for it and a tiny quilt. The quilt was sewn from tiny cut off corners of another quilt that would normally be thrown away.
Why did I think of this cradle and quilt you ask? Because of this book quote...
" 'Er ladyship will be pleased to lend ee two truckle-beds, two goose-feather mattresses, an' two patchwork counterpanes. I be to take the trap to the manor this afternoon an' Moses Glory Glory Alleluja will give 'em to me."
When I read this in my current book Linnets and Valerians by Elizabeth Goudge, I just had to share it with you.
