I’ve done quite a bit of research on my family tree, on my maternal side I’m back to the 1600’s and there doesn’t seem to be
many any skeletons, no great historical figures , no lost inheritances, just hard-working folks, the main occupations of my forbearer were Agricultural labours, Servants to the middle classes and then Workers in the cotton mills. There has been a series on TV of late called ‘The Mill’ set in the cotton mills of 1830’s which I have been riveted to as it was like looking through a mirror to envision how my ancestors lived and worked.
I then got to thinking, I love it when an idea comes to life.
I didn’t recreate the hat as I didn’t want to flatten her ears, I’m wildly excited where this journey is taking me,
