A little more about Ms. Bloeser

I wanted to share some additional info I had on E. Bloeser.   In fact, her name is Elisa, and and she was about 10 years old when she stitched her sampler.  She later married and had 2 sons.  They married and each had 4 children.  This family photo was taken in Montevideo, South America in 1923.  I think finding more about her is most exciting and I look forward to finding out more about her as time goes on.  Isnt it fabulous to see what she looks like?  It is wonderful to see this photo, and know who they are.  So many of these pictures exist, without any stories to tell.  I wonder what she would think about us 157 years later stitching her sampler?!  Simply incredible :)
