    My husband and I visited the LSU Rural Life Museum today. There was a small quilt show, and I did take pictures of a couple of quilts, but even more interesting to me were the old sewing machines and other textile artifacts.

    What an interesting place. Thanks for taking us with you! That very old machine with the foot-shaped treadle almost looks like it was used for something other than domestic sewing.

    Very much enjoyed your post & blog pictures; will check back to see more. Found all the antique fiber looms & jennies fascinating. The antique washing machines were a hoot. Thanks for your virtual trip. Like your 3 Ds :thumbup:
