HERITAGE: Weekly Photo Challenge


Ben H at WordPress says “This week, share a photo of something that says “heritage” to you. It can be from your own family or culture — a library, a work of public art, a place of worship, an object passed down to you from previous generations.”

Mary Alta Kerr Hendricks my paternal grandmother. Farmersville, Illinois. She taught me to knit when I was four years old.

She knit the Afghan and made the quilt. She. Luke tat snd crochet, too. I held the quilt to the window so the light could show how beautifully it is pieced snd stitched.

My father Roy J. Hendricks is the boy standing on the left. Uncle Alan Hendricks is the baby on my grandmother’s lap. My grandfather is standing, Floyd Merle Hendricks.
